  • I found the prices very expensive when compared to markets of crafts in Lima and Cusco. I managed to buy a bag for 30 soles, that several vendors charged me twice!

  • Recommend the handicrafts fair. There you can buy good gifts to remind you of the trip or gift for family and friends. The main ones are mugs, alpaca, wool sweaters, cardigans ... among others. It is important to check the prices, as there is great variation between the tents. If you haggle, you get a better price. Not to be missed!
