  • This place is really lovely and interesting due to the variety of local souvenirs it has. Like some markets around the world, in this one you have to bargain! Is better if you buy a lot of products to the same owner than buying 2 or 3 things at different shops. In fact is the cheapest way! All the shops usually have the same products so make sure you wander through the whole market before buying anything. Most of the time is crowded and the halls are narrow, is not dangerous but pay attention to your belongings. The free parking is small, better get an uber.
  • Great variety of artisan work. Beautiful shawls, colorful and soft. Serve as great gift to wear or as throw blankets. They also have a great variety of jewelry made with materials such as tagua which are inexpensive and beautiful. There is also a great variety of Andean dolls, artifacts and souvenirs all around. Parking is a little tricky downtown but not impossible to find.
