When Hurricane Wilma hit Cancun in October of 2005, much of the city was ravaged beyond recognition. Parque de las Palapas was no exception, but it has made a strong comeback and is well on its way to regaining its former glory. The palapas (palm trees) may not be as grand as they once were, but the food vendors are out in force. This plaza finds itself filled with locals and tourists alike enjoying the great food variety that is offered by the many food carts. Parque de las Palapas is a fantastic spot to grab a meal and mingle.
