"They are everywhere" Street Sellers Tip by easterntrekker

Street Sellers, Cusco: 5 reviews and 4 photos


Everywhere you turn you'll see street venders plying their wares. You can't blame them they are trying to make a dollar.
Alpacha sweaters are big on the list of merchandie. It's good to know when you're bargaining that these colourful sweaters are generally made from sheep wool, although there are some of alpaca, but these are a lot more expensive.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

    Street vendors tend to overcharge. A street vendor wanted 70 soles for a painted kalabash, and this girl at the Inca Museum sold me one for 35 Soles. And Alpaca sweaters are often fake knock offs. Check some other places first.
