  • There is so much to do at the market. Lots of shops and restaurants. You can definitely barter prices. 
  • After lunch we walked through the market. It reminded me of the many markets in Mexico. It's a maze of booths. I bought a basket for use as a bread basket back home. Neat to see and it's worthy of 30 ...  more »
  • Cheapest prices, lots of variety, for those who like crafts will feel at home with so many beautiful and colorful things.

  • 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!
