If you want to see 100 stalls of the same art for prices that are triple what they should be, this is the spot for you. A few little good finds here and there but you have to hunt. It's unfortunate for the few vendors...More

There are plenty of places to buy souvenirs in Old Havana and around town but this market has a wide variety of choices. I was able to find magnets, humidors and art that served as excellent gifts and mementos. My friend found more of the...More

While I thought this place was kind of fun, it was definitely overwhelming. It's very hard to get past some of the boths and on to the next booth. The vendors stand in your way, and make it hard to get by them. It's also...More

Don’t shop here. The same souvenirs and paintings you find in this place you can simply walk the streets and find it cheaper and are able to negotiate the prices better. In this market it seemed all the vendors had the same prices and would...More

There are souvenirs here like nowhere else, and much local art as well, all at good prices. The key word: negotiate. The place is simply huge, and fronts the waterway.

This is a warehouse sized craft market. Nearly every shop sells the same stuff. There are a few stalls selling unique jewelry and purses but mostly the same items stall to stall. Everything is very inexpensive so buying some items does help support the workers...More

Nice shopping experience. Got some amazing local art. Stick to the stalls in the back closer to the waterfront for better deals. They will take advantage if you aren't paying attention.
