On my opinion,it's not worth what they ask for the things. But, they sell stuff from recycled materials - that's cool!!!

I went intentionally looking for this store. It is the entry to a hostel. Just about everything there is something you can find from any of the street venders just about anywhere in Latin America. The quality seemed average to good. After looking for over a half hour, I couldn't find anything to buy that was different or distinctive enough... More

I loved the shop and bought a few items of jewelry and clothing, which were lovely and unique. While shopping, I learned that they shipped packages. Their rates were slightly higher than the post office, but they were open on the weekends and until 9:00 pm on most nights. A few days later we brought in some items to be... More

In most "artisan" shops in Nicaragua you will find the same exact items you can find in any local market. If you want to see items made in Nicaragua by real Nicaraguan artisans this is the place to go. Reasonable prices and items you can't find anywhere else, not to mention excellent customer service. Do not miss this place or... More
