We walked through a crowded market full of all types of vendors. Our guide directed us to the fruit vendors where we explored 16 varieties. There was time at the end to talk and review and enjoy some local juice.

Great tasting and informative. Have never tried a number of these fruits and can honestly say some require and acquire taste. History about the market itself very interesting. Felt very safe and our guide was awesome.
