There are two main stores we recommend and a few other places to check. Don’t expect bargains or discount prices. In fact a lot of athletic shoes and wear are full retail priced and more than in the United States or Canada. If you cannot find what you are looking for, email us and  we will try to find it or point you in the right direction.

Marti Store

Marti is the biggest store that carries only athletic wear. They have a selection of all kinds of shoes, running gear, swimming wear, gym clothes, some camping supplies, bicycles of good quality, and other exercise equipment. Marti has several locations in Playa Del Carmen. Sometimes selection is better in one store over another for certain things. Centro Maya Shopping Mall has a Marti Store. There is a Marti store in the Quinta Alegria shopping plaza on 5th Avenue and a Marti on 30th Avenue and 12th St.

Most of the larger grocery stores have inexpensive wear. Walmart tends to have the better selection. If you are looking for basic shoes that are not name brand or serve a particular sport you can try Juarez Avenue between 10th and 25th Avenues or 30th Avenue around 54th St.

  1. Any chance you have come across a store that may sell Big and Tall clothing. Nothing worse than realizing that you’ve forgotten something and being 6ft3 and over 300lbs it makes it hard to find clithing…. hahaha

      It is hard to find those things here. Most Mexican and those of Mayan decent are much smaller framed. The best options would be in the shopping malls like Centro Maya on the south end of town. There is the larger mall in Cancun called Plaza Las Americas and the mall named the same here in Playa. Some of the stores in Centro Maya have a wider selection. That is about as good as it gets. Sorry for not offering you more options. Shopping is hard here and with hardly no sales, full retail prices, and random selection and supply, you have to buy when you see something. Many people that are expats go shopping in Florida for clothes at the outlet malls.

  2. I am glad I found your post because I am coming to do some sport in Playa Del Carmen and need to get some workout clothes.

  3. Anyone know if there is anywhere to get Quintana Roo Tigres gear in Playa Del Carmen or Cancun. El Siglo the manufacturers do not ship to Canada.

    • We actually have never searched for it but we will look around and let you know if we find it. Thanks for asking us and we hope to find an answer for you.
