Interesting, when you from another continent, to view different foods, or different presentation of foods in another country. Fruits, vegetables, flowers and meats ... all sold here, from local producers. Most foods, always the same as home, however, the prickly pear cactus and fruit, habanero...More

I by far enjoyed shopping here! Great place to get something for everyone. Make sure you allow for at least a couple of hours to shop here.

This market has absolutely everything you can imagine, from pottery to food to metal works, and everything in between. We found that we were not able to bargain very effectively here, probably because there is so much traffic, but we enjoyed walking around.

The Mercado is a great place to find everything from clothing, jewelry, souvenirs, and home decor. All merchants will negotiate prices - some reducing the price by up to 25%. Merchants are extremely friendly and speak English. U.S. dollar is accepted at a reasonable conversion...More

A great mix of the local trinkets and folk art. Plan your day and give yourself time, there is a lot to see. You need to really look and take the time if you want to find the unusual.
