"Shopping in Cuzco" Peru Tourist Trap Tip by marialva

Peru Tourist Traps: 56 reviews and 42 photos

Stores at the main square are pretty expensive, I have 2 tips, one for jewelry: there is a great little store up in San Blas named Spondylus, I found the most beautiful things there, and rememeber to negociate the price.
My second piece of advice is to go to the market right across the train station to buy crafts and textiles, they are two or three times cheaper than every where else.

Fun Alternatives: Never take the first price merchants give you!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
