Talipapa market is small colorful market specially for live as well as dead sea foods. There are souvenir shops also. Being a vegetarian, you may not like to go there because of rich aroma coming out of the seas foods. You can also choose live food items here.

I really enjoyed coming here. I love fresh seafood however you need to be prepared to be surrounded by alive/dead seafood that you can pick out. In the middle of the markets is where all the fresh seafood and meat is stored. Most of it is stored on ice or it is still alive. You then choose hwat you want... More

Talipapa market is a nice pleasant walk from Station 2 along the beach & then off to the left about 200 meters. Great fresh seafood available for lunch or dinner. Abundant souvenirs to be purchased for your love ones

No matter if you have the best bargaining skills - the seafood here is still TOO expensive. And you'd still have to pay for cooking prices. The sellers weren't so pleasant either. I wouldn't eat here, the ambiance isn't great - not that it is facing the beach or anything. Just very touristy. Plus you wouldn't know if your expensive... More

Second year going to this place. Some of the friendliest people you can meet here. Also great place to put your bargaining skills to use. Bought lot's of souviner's here again. Isn't as easy to bargain as it was the last time I came here. But still a great place to go shopping. Feels more like an authentic Filipino shopping... More

We wanted to try the "one of the must try in boracay" which is too eat in d'talipapa. Price is as expected expensive. I am not satisfied with how they cooked our crab. It was below what I have expected. I love to eat crabs and prawns so I guess, it did not surpass my expectation. Maybe we just did... More

Typical street style market, similar to those you can find in Phuket or Chatuchak. Lots of touristy souvenirs to buy. It's definitely a lot cheaper than D'mall, so it's worth a visit. Seafood there is hella expensive though. Our local guide manage to get the seafood from another market, but we did our cooking with their one of their stores... More

Fresh goods that can be cooked by some "Paluto" that is also just around the corner. Prices may vary and they have minimum fees if the food you bought is not 1 kilo because their fees are all per kilo. Best when shared with friends or family.

Just walking distance from my hotel (Best Western), very fresh seafood (live fish, shrimp, lobster, claim...) Pricey, but, hey, it's fresh! Don't forget to haggle. Caution, it's wet and easy slippery. You can buy seafood here and have a restaurant nearby to cook for you. Just pay a fee for cooking service. Many gifts shop around. Great place to eat... More
