  • Pros: easy to get to, plenty of choices of handcrafted souvenirs, and not too expensive. Have on mind that you can get a better price from a different store if you are willing to bargain. Cons: a few stores try to sell souvenirs that aren't really ours, just ask or try to find that little "made in China" tag if you are feeling suspicious.
  • It have good handcrafts but you need to explore before buy something, because the same things have differents prices depending of the place
  • Good place for touristy items. Shop owners are willing to barter as well.
  • Great little souvenir market. People are very friendly
  • If you are looking for a place where you can buy salvadorean handicrafts, this is the place you must go....
