The candy market is great fun!
Most of the vendors sell the same things, but there is some variation.
Some look fresher and better presented.
It is fun to browse and bring something back for friends.
Very colorful!

There are about 10 little stalls that compose the area. Each has a selection of homemade candies stored in glass jars. Many of the shops have created sample packs in the event you are not Colombian and don't know what each candy tastes like. Many of these candies are made of coconut and all are seriously sugary! If you aren't a serious sweet, sweet candy lover these will not be for you.

A one and done thing to see unless you are big into coconut treats.

I have a sweet tooth, so this was definitely on my list of things to visit when in town. Various local vendors selling sweets. Plenty to choose from if you love coconut flavored treats. I did not get anything.

In this place you can really find all the local proposal of sweets and candies at a very reasonable price. Choose always the old ladies as avendor, they are the ones with the old tradition !!!! If you love it try all of them once !!!

More of a people watching local, but there are many vendors selling local treats. Be adventurous and try some variety...best to share as really sweet.

If you’re wandering around the old city enjoy a cool stroll under the arches with stall after stall packed with sugary sweets. Paradise for anyone looking for a sugar rush.

Try the cocada, balls of syrup and coconut, or the blocks of guava paste wrapped in banana leaves. These are actually great as energy bars for cycling or running - and you can get a whole box of them here for the price of one piece in Europe.

Portal de Los Dulces is located in the Plaza de Los Coches. In the arcaded walkway there are many sweet shops and areas to retreat from the heat. Great place to pick up a little treat to take back home but also to admire the architecture while you have a cold refreshing drink.

Tour of these places is not necessary - you can do this yourself! Destinations mentioned are next to each other - google the sites and save yourself the money - haggle for prices at el Paseo de Los Dulce’s - home made sweets - most will give you samples. Try the coconut sweets. Delicious

I absolutely LOVE candy, but found the Portal de Los Dulces to be a total let-down. It’s just a long arcade with vendors all selling the exact same thing basically. The quality (and cleanliness) is questionable at best, as with any street vendors. I did buy one sample to try and it was terrible! No actual quality candy stores to be found here. Worth a quick walk through but little else.
