I highly recommend visiting market square. Such a great ambiance with live music. There are a few parking lots near the market and you can easily find parking for $5-$10. We did not get a chance to eat at Mi Tierra, but we did try various snacks(good but a little pricey) being sold throughout the market. Must try are the... More

We stop to shop every trip. The last visit we purchased a nice leather purse, very well made, for my wife...price was very reasonable for the quality. Also picked up a nice straw sombrero for yard work back home. Too many nice things to list!

Nothing much to say about El Mercado. It's old, it has shops selling souvenirs. The type you'd probably regret buying when you got home, There's a few restaurants which serve OK food. That's it.
