But a lot of the same same, look really hard for the different pieces and stalls with an artist working on his own pieces. Better prices than tourist shops but Remember the best examples go to the airport shops and high end shops.

This market is a good place to stop after visiting the Masaya Volcano. There is a huge selection of jewelry, leather goods, colorful fabrics, even hammocks. If you want a one stop shop to buy your souvenirs, then this is the place. There is something...More
