Don't be deceived by claims that the gems sold in this market are real. They are not. Everything is plastic made to appear real. This makes this plastic jewelry incredibly expensive. The merchants will offer you tequila with the hope that you will get drunk and abandon all reason and buy their trinkets for outrageous amounts. Don't be fooled by the claims that it is the only government-sanctioned market--probably the only one sanctioned to steal. Your tour guide will want to take you here. If so, run away & don't tip him for wanting to expose you to these thrives. It is also known as "El Parazal".
