Plenty of affordable souveneirs! Crafts, textiles and food delicacies on display. It is worth a visit for an authentic mercado experience. The hats and scarves are very colourful, couldn't get enough of them. Love it!

This market was close to our accommodation and was a great place to wander around. It had a good range of gifts to take home and also lots of interesting local items. We got some great bargains here.

If you want to see the local culture and get out of the tourist atmosphere at the plaza, this is the place to go! Try a fruit smoothie and a local dish. Everything is well priced and the locals love interacting with tourists to share...More
