The market is in an old building so is covered and protected from the elements. There is a wide selection of crafts and arts. You can get just about any Nicaraguan craft here.

Typical tourist market with local crafts. Most booths selling same items which all vary in prices... u have to barter in order to get a better deal than the previous stall. We had several "local guides" follow us around which got uncomfortable but the kids were quickly able to find a few souvenirs and we were out. Not a bad shopping experience but typical of every other Caribbean tourist area.

Visited the craft fair for about an hour. Most of the stalls had the same items. The building that it's in is nice and it is covered.

We stopped here after the volcano. Nothing special. Bought nothing. Most stores sell the same things - touristy stuff at tourist prices - no locals shopping. I did see some nice wooden bowls and the fornicating frogs were interesting. The bathrooms were not free! Nice saxophone player - I think he ran one of the shops - he was the highlight!
