Nice place for souvenirs

Lots of souvenirs to choose at the best price around Boracay maybe. Kind of hot when shopping around, makes you want to rush into the beach and swim.

Great place! but don't be shy go for at least 50% of original asking price. It's waaayy overpriced anyway. Also keep in mind that you still have to pay a restaurant to cook your fresh seafood! :) Great experience, Great seafood! Spend a little extra on live lobster!!

Really a native local market Except of your grocery it's also a very good opportunity for photos Just be prepared for a lot of smoke because of many BBQs around the market and smell of fish all over the place, but really this is what is worth in trips like this, Correct?

Located at Station 2 about 5 minutes walk from the beach. About 40 stalls selling fresh seafoods with lobster, oysters, big prawns, fishes...etc. Prices is extremely ridiculous high. Bargain 30%-40% off the price first quoted. Just for update as at 13th April 2015. A XXL green lobster (dead) is at 2000 pesos/kg. A XXL live crab is 700 pesos/kg. After... More

Buy your own FRESH seafood and have them cooked at the restaurants within the market at a nominal price. Good and interesting concept.
