    Clothes in Cocha

    by paddyk7 Updated Nov 11, 2009

    As a westerner, if you're planning on getting cheap designer clothes in Cocha, forget about it. Expect to pay at least 250Bs. up to 500Bs. for a pair of jeans. Granted, 25 euro sounds like a bargain, but when you consider food costs ten times less than it does at home while clothes are only slightly cheaper, you'd be much better served doing clothes shopping in Argentina, which can be substantially cheaper than Bolivia.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Cancha

    It´s always fascinating to visit a market place in southamerica. La cancha in Cochabamba is a quite big market where you an find everything from fresh fruits to clothes or technical equipments. ´
    Besides you can find a lot of professions here in the streets for a few money, as for ecample shoe makers.

    What to buy: Almost everything

    What to pay: For a shoe repair I paid 7 Bolivianos (~ 1.30 Dollar), the same repair in Germany would cost me ~20 Euro/Dollars. Imagine! And they did it better and faster.
