I went there to find a couple of chargers and the people were really helpful in their indications to find the place. It's actually really cheaper than in traditional shop. The market is huge and full of different products. It's clean and well organised.

Tacna was recommended as a very good place to shop. What I found was copies of brand products made in China.

This attraction is located in the city of tacna peru, 45 minutes from arica. The market is too interesting, since you can find very good food, juices and cheap items. Very good to know the Peruvian culture

We ate ceviche at Don Leo's at Mercado central. It was delicious and the price was reasonable 2 ceviches and 2 of the best Tacna Sours! All for 54 soles (like $15). Walking around the market was fun and entertaining as well!
