Shopping time at the Inca market in Miraflores
In the chic district of Miraflores, you will discover the Inca market where most of the foreign tourists come to do their shopping (and I’m the first one to do it!). This market offers you many kinds of products – above all Peruvian handicrafts – for everyone’s taste! It’s also the opportunity for visitors to bring back some presents for their family members and friends. From the Peruvian poncho (indeed a bit cliché!), to handbags, jewellery or music instruments: you will necessary find something here that makes you happy! My favourite handicrafts are the nice and colored tableclothes, typical from the Andes. The various combinations of colors let the choice to the visitor which very often will stay during long minutes trying to make a decision! 🙂
Don’t hesitate to negotiate the prices and remain firm with the sellers. You will only be given a discount if you show that you know what you want! You’ll have the possibility to pay by visa depending on the amount you’ll be ready to spend! 😉
There is also a smaller market in the Marina district (accessible by bus or “combi”). On the whole, all products are of very good quality – so enjoy! It’s always a pleasure to do shopping! 🙂
