    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More shopping in Puno too ???? Actually we liked shopping at a little pedistrian shopping area. that runs fromthe Plaza de Armas to the Parque Pino.

    Lots of deals and as in most areas, you get a better price if you buy quanity.

    La Raya: A high Point

    by easterntrekker Written Oct 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a nice break from our journey for a 15 minute shopping spree at La Raya.

    The locals were waiting for us as they do for every train with smiling faces and colourful goods.

    I admire them . All along our journey you could see them working hard...tending to theit livestock and living simlpy from the land . They bring their treasures to us ...gorgeous hand made sweaters, blankets, scarves etc.

    I bought a pair of alpaca fur slippers for about $15.00.

    What to pay: Bargaining is brisk but be fair!!

    Street shops: Good sovenir shopping

    Other VTers have written stating that the Lima Street shops are good to go to and where the deals are. I agree with them, but I also want to add that a better deal are the side street shops directly next to the dock where you board the boats to the Uros floating islands.

    What to buy: Just the same Alpaca wool products, bamboo pipes, trinkets. Not as good a selection as Agua Caliente but a bit cheaper.

    The best place you gotta visit if you need to buy somehting is the central market. Here you can find whatever you need...caps, tshirts, jackets, pullovers and so on...and for sure, also the hojas de coca, which was very good for us coming from the "lower level"...

    As far as I remember, the Shopping Street of Puno is called Lima Street. And all you want is sold on this walking street, which goes to the left from Plaza de Armas looking from the Cathedral.
