We were advised that visiting Boracay is not complete without trying out the seafoods in D'Talipapa. So, we really did go there even if it's raining heavily. After a few minutes of heavy rains,the place was flooded. My dad was quite shocked on the prices. We were no good in bargaining the prices so we were able to slash a... More

As nice as it can seem, you have to pay extra attention when shopping in this market. Always try to bargain the price as the first price they propose you is generally very high. And, even more important, always check your change. We paid 300pesos using a 1000pesos bill, and the first change we were given was... 400 pesos. We... More

After reading so many positive and negative reviews here, I have second thoughts about coming here.... But curiosity kills the cat and I really regret coming!!! I bargained and paid about 700peso(Expensive) for a kg of jumbo tiger prawns and brought to a nearby restaurant to cook it(grilled). Taste average...bad atmosphere. Really not worth it. I advice everyone not to... More

though very far from where I stayed, definitely worth the walk. Lots of cheap stuff from pens, mugs, ref magnet and boracay shirts for pasalubong/souvenirs for friends and family. Must visit. Can't haggle much though.. We were able to buy matching boracay shirts for my family for P500, great deal!

Compare to D'mall, this place selling cheaper in terms of sourvenior,clothing etc. Example, fridge magnet only cost P100 for 8pcs, what a bargain. There is wet market there, you can buy fresh seafood and get nearby restaurant for cooking service. Please be smart when bargain with seller at wet market. Slash the price offer at least 80%.hahaha

I have heard from locals that this is the safest place where you can eat seafoods without worrying that you'll get an upset stomach. Food is moderately priced but since it is located within the market, it may be unsanitary to some. But otherwise its the best way to eat seafoods like locals do.
