How to Go Clothes Shopping in Cancun — Without Looking Like a Tourist

Jeans from Mexican retailer Cuidado Con El Perro and shirt and shoes from Zara make for ideal evening wear for men in Cancun. 


Just landed in Cancun, Mexico, and realized you packed too light? There are plenty of clothing stores in this popular vacation destination, but too often people equate beach destinations with T-shirts and neon-colored shorts. Check out Angel’s finds as we show you how to go clothes shopping in Cancun — without looking like a tourist. 

Now, I’m not worth much when it comes to shopping and fashion. Luckily, my partner Angel, is quite good at finding interesting clothing at good prices. So if you’re looking for fashion inspiration, check out  these three inexpensive looks that he picked up during our recent visit to Cancun (I’ve attempted to creatively dub each look appropriately, but forgive me if I miss the mark). Now there’s no reason to wear that Señor Frog’s get-up when you head out for a gourmet dinner!
