  • The old Market in Granada is probably one of the most visited place by tourists looking for souvenirs in Nicaragua, is actually one of the few where you can find souvenirs actually. Prices may be slightly higher than the "new" market of Masaya but the shopping experience is definitely better here. All the shops have plenty of objects, the place has shade, there is an ATM and a DHL if you want to send bigger stuff at home.
  • Some very cool handmade crafts here for good prices. Prices are always negotiable.
  • Lots of things to find here, and great prices on hammocks
  • Typical tourist market, but nice to catch some souvenirs.
  • Great place!
