“Huge!!!”
Review of Art Market

Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

This was a tour stop. If you want a souvenir or art this is the place to go. Aisles of crafts but frankly repeated by different vendors the same product.

This was an amazing place. Size of 2 Costco’s crammed full of art. This could take a day or 2 to do it right. The art is fabulous with jaw dropping low prices for original art. For example, one of our party bought a roughly 36”x24” original oil on canvas for $200. Be sure to get the export certificate when you buy art, otherwise you will have to pay a fee when leaving the country.

Stalls and stalls of paintings and souvenirs. The place is huge. I doubt though that this is a place where an artist of serious merit would sell their paintings. More of a flea market. Worth a browse if you are in the area.

There isn’t a lot to shop for in Cuba. Basically if you take home cigars and rum, you’ve done it. However, if you are the type to buy goods to remind you of the places you’ve been, then this is the spot. I found the vendors pretty aggressive though, which is a turn off. However, you can find some treasures here. Typical of markets all over the world, you can find some interesting items, also Che Guevara t shirts, berets etc! You will be accosted by people for sure: people who will stand in front of the official cigar shop offering to sell you cheaper versions of name brand cigars. Like most communist countries, there is an underground capitalist pulse!

Nicely done museum gives you an overview of the local art. Although we did not know any of the exposed painters we found some remarkable pieces of art. Worth for a visit
