This is one of the many places that you can buy gifts. I have been there many times. You can haggle a little but the prices are reasonable although you may find better deals with street vendors as they have less overhead

We were able to find a few trinkets and handcrafts at this series of shop: colorful and typical ! We also got good prices since we dared to bargain encouraged by our guide who suggested we did so.

The amount of of poor taste so-called handicraft is appalling. All the store carry pretty much the same stuff. Prices vary but only if you let yourself be tricked by the initial price. Paying 40-50% the initial price is the norm (and you probably over paid). The location is impressive and allows you to get a feeling of what the thickness of the walls are and what the jail must have been.

This collection of shops that are aimed squarely at the tourist are a bit pricey but they do speak English. They do have a lot of interesting and unusual items along with the usual souvenirs that can also be found in Boca Grande. They don't like to bargain too much and you can find better deals on more authentic things from the street peddlers

The structure is worth seeing but the vendors are all selling the same things at jacked up prices. There are many other souvenir stores selling local handicrafts and tchotchkes at much better prices. I recommend walking through the shops but save your money and buy elsewhere.
