    This is the place to shop. It is soooo interesting and lots to see. The prices can not be beat....I love the local flair...The spanish language the people visiting and going about their business..Bartering for items is expected and you can get items for half or less... That being said, there are some items which u do not need to barter for prices are reasonable...It is near the cathedral and central square....lots to see and experience...!!!!!!Enjoy the local flavor it is like going back in time...

    Fishermen's Beach Market

    This is where local fishermen sell their catch early in the morning to housewives, businesses, etc. Besides fresh fish at reasonable prices, this market is great for people watching. There are no set hours as the market closes when the fish are sold.

    Centro Market

    Centro Market

    A traditional market with many specialty stores surrounding it for great shopping. One difference in shopping at the market is that there is limited bartering. The produce, food and meat sections have labeled prices for their products. However, bartering still occurs in the non grocery areas. Centro is arranged with sections on the inside for clothing, souvenirs, knick knacks, flowers, bakery products, fruit and vegetables, meat, poultry and seafood. The exteriors of the markets have shops with various products and refreshments. A great place to wander with a few pesos!

    The Market

    the Market

    The market is just a few blocks from the cathedral and looks a lot different from any markets I've seen in the U.S. or Europe. You'll find fruits and vegetables, meat, clothes, pottery, and more. If blood makes you queasy it’s best to avoid the meat counters – they don’t make butchering look nice and pretty here!

    Yellow!

    Make sure you go to the big market in the older part of the city...watch out for the pigs heads though. There is a really cool cathedral close by that is gorgeous.
