  • Great little market! Very clean & friendly vendors. Love that a lot of the vendors will personalize your items. Definitely we'll go back next time in El Salvador.
  • If you are a tourist and looking to pick up some local crafts this is a good place to go. Some of the stores have the stuff you see all over the world probably made in china, but many of them do have some unique local goods. They also have a decent restaurant you can get lunch at.
  • I loved this market. It's somewhat small, but it's safe and it has the best selection of artisan handicrafts. I purchased an indigo table cloth and a hand embroidered runner. Some of the souvenirs are cheap, but there are true gems here. I had my taxi cab wait for me. Here is a tip, bring cash, there isn't an ATM in the market. Many of the stalls do not accept Visa.
  • This market is so good, here are a diversity of stuffs , typical enviroment We can enjoy every single store , if you come you can found hamacs, blankets, some typical clothe, everything than you need!!! and the most important GOOD PRICES!!!
  • In the souvenir market near the highway between San Salvador and El Salvador have Comalapa international airport, lined with many shops. Body language can 10 minutes a haggle is silly but Spain, the clerk should have paper and a pen.
