  • Fruit and vegetables here is there in abundance see. The many different varieties of potato are also great. We have very well like the juice stalls. At the entrance, there are also quite unusual stalls - like soothsayers, poisoner, or shaman. Definitely worth a visit :D

  • Don't come to this market to buy souvenirs, there is not. However you will be surprised by specialized in fruit, vegetables, cheese aisles... Will enjoy a fresh juice. Many choices, with bear without milk... Count 9 S for a fresh juice (1 glass and a half). The ladies you are facing nice's lying with their card of choice, it is very good child.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
