The carnival period for retail sales is every day. Carnival is a huge event in February that last some days. I heard the streets are more crowded than usual at that time, with locals and foriegners. If you want a souvenir, they are scattered throughout the narrow streets. It is a treat to go in and shop for something to purchase. The variety is endless. Most shops do not want you to come in and merely look at the merchandise, though. The intent is to buy something.
