You can find lots of handmade items made from the natural resources of Honduras and surrounding countries e.g. leather (cuero), pearls (perla), silver (plata), and timber (madera). Make sure to haggle if you can. Some good phrases to know are ¿Cuánto cuesta? (How much is this?), and Sólo estoy mirando, gracias. (I'm just looking, thank you.) A lot of the... More

We walked here from our hotel and had to come back the next day. We found the prices in the center of the market to be a little less than those on the outside borders. All vendors were respectful and not pushy but they did bargain a little. Got some good package deals by putting several things together. This is... More

Passed through this place and a couple really cool mesoamerican bowls and a vase. Even as an American, I was able to bargain a bit and definitely felt like I could get fair prices. Salespeople negotiate well but are not aggressive or looking to rip people off. If you have some time before or after a flight to SPS, its... More

Tourists should be encouraged to pay a visit to Guamilito. We were looking for a hammock and even though we really drove around looking for decent prices, we ended up in Guamilito. If you're into corn tortillas make sure you buy some while in there. Lots of things not only honduran crafts but possibly the best located an priced of... More

If you are travelling through San Pedro Sual this is the place to be for buying some hand crafted thing to take home. You must bargain for a good price of course!

Great crafts at really good prices. Go with a local if you can so you can bargain, kiosk owners are not that fond of bargaining with foreigners. Safe, but keep an eye open just in case. Must visit while in San Pedro Sula.

We visited this market twice...once as we arrived in Honduras and then 2 weeks later when we were on the way out of the country. It is a bit hard to find in downtown San Pedro Sula, but all the local people know if as the market where the ladies make tortillas (tortilla factory) which is also fascinating to watch.... More
