    Gamarra is a world apart, with hundreds of shops, galleries and buildings, everything is selling clothing, is a place where there is much but many people, few tourists know it and those who will indeed by any data or advice there is not much publicity in this respect It is a walk of several hours, first to see that it is what you want, then to determine the store where it is cheaper, there are always sales especially if you buy more than one unit. Anyway there are that have safeguards is a very popular place and passes too many people.

    We went to Gamarra a Saturday. We were told that there was a great variety of clothes, both original and imitation. And Yes, true, it is true... However, and while no one place is saturated with people warned us, it is very dirty, street vendors become stalkers to offer their products, any security not seen anywhere. I think that go with someone who knows the place can be worth it, otherwise, not to go... better go to powder blue, where everything is a little more organized and secure.

    If you wish to buy clothes of good quality and very cheap this is option, as every place reach the popular markets implies careful, go and watch a lot and be available to all regatar, that we must be careful? I think t is it recommended everywhere in each country and more because aki no much use of credit cards and ATMs, but us if we receive cooperation and we wore these services without problem, countless galleries that you must go to floors and floors and you will find wonder of all, shoes, clothing, handbags, infinity and all good quality for something have a reputation for excellent clothing, if ordered marks many give them to you and are almost, almost excellent imitations at half price, (compared with Tommy products. Adidas, Lacoste, t-shirts from 18 soles last models). I take the opportunity and buy clothing's daily among my children and buy 3 pieces give you more discount, just apply with underwear and my weakness purses and shoes, we had visit 2 days to complete your purchases desired, everything very well and without any setback,
