Cancun can be extremely affordable when it comes to food. You don't have to go to fancy restaurants or be a good cook to have any food you want. I've been to Cancun twice and each time I bought my groceries in two stores: Walmart and Chedraui. Chedraui is a Mexican store located on Av. Tulum which is basically as soon as Blvd Kukulcan ends, is easily accessible by car and public bus, the bus stop is right in front of the store. Blvd Kukulcan is the street along which all the hotels are located. Walmart is a little bit further along the same road. What I love about these two stores is they have lots of food, it's very cheap. They both have a lot of delicious pastries, Walmart has however significantly more as far as variety goes. You can also buy birthday cakes at Walmart, and Corona beer is much cheaper than in the US. So if you are on a budget, I would recommend checking out Walmart and Chedraui instead going to restaurants. You will save a lot of money.
