    “Is this a shopping center?”

    by schlumpf Written Dec 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the main square there is the main shop, where all the locals are producing all their tipical stuff, from the tipical cap (single or married), pullovers, and a lot of other stuff...

    Here the prices are almoust fixed, isn’t so easy to bergain, and the costs are pretty high....

    For a cap consider to spend about 10/15 USD.

    Waist Bands at Taquili

    The shop is right on the main town square and is right next to the small white church.

    What to buy: The bright and colorful garments that the locals wear and make can be bought. You can buy the men's caps and waist bands as well as the women's multio-layered skirts and blouses.

    What to pay: Barter, but the waist bands tend to be expensive for Peru standards. They are really nice though.

    main plaza

    why?avoid buying directly at inhabitants:if the share of money doesn't go to the collectivity,community life will disapear....

    if begging,buy their handicrafts instead of handing out sweets indiscriminately!
