  • The market is more clean and tidy that Cusco, considering that in Peru the markets are not characterized by their hygiene is a merit, is an appearance by highlight. I liked the variety of juguerias within the market, juices are prepared at the time and the fruit is biting. Good choice to buy akfa

  • You know a market and get to know a country. At least I think so. Not only fruits, meats, natural herbs and vegetables we have. It is known to the people and their customs.

  • San Camilo market in Arequipa is one of the cleanest, most wecoming markets I have visited in South America. The meat and fish look great. The snack bars, veggie stands and juice bars look wonderful. ...  more »

  • It is a very colorful, orderly, clean market featuring the greatest array of fruit from all over, neatly arranged. Cheese, meats, flowers, typical dishes, and all sorts of stuff, surrounded by the sweet smell of sahumerio. My favorite market, a must see in Arequipa.
  • Bustling historical market in Arequipa. Fresh fruit there is incredible with the choices of exotic fruit. Fresh home cheeses. Can find most things here.
  • One of the more organised and clean markets you come across. The sit down food is upstairs and is quite the experience to have the ladies try to get you to pick them. The fruit juice section downstairs is great.
  • A lot of different things to see and to learn. Varieties of corn, the unusual frog juice with egg, milk, maca, beer and some fruits was interesting to know. Some fruits such as the lucuma was also very cultural.
  • It's easy to get there and you can find almost everything you need

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.
