The market by the train station in Aguas Caliente was my favorite. There are so many bargains and so much cool stuff. I got labeled Baby Alpaca scarves for 20 soles (about $7) and I am not a very experienced bargainer. There were also local people selling slices of fresh baked banana bread. I got some cool jewelery and some Che Gueverra cigarillos. Also musical instruments, just about everything one could think of. We were told by some that Agua Calientes was boring, with nothing to do. I spent hours just wandering the streets and was not bored for a minute.
What to buy: Alpaca sweaters, scarves, hats. Finger puppets, stuffed llamas, stuffed animals. I wish I had bought more!
What to pay: Baby alpaca is a little more expensive (or a lot more if you shop at pricey boutiques) Most clothing items were 10-50 soles (I got the most awesome hat ever for 20 soles)
En Pisac , en la carretera y en otros pueblos se encuentran los vendedores que tienen recuerdos tejidos con mucho colorido y donde no falta la lana de llama y de alpaca
In Pisac , on the road and in all other villages you will find sellers that have souvenirs hand woven with brilliant colours and where are not missing the llama and alpaca wools
