This was the first place we seen when we got to Costa Rica, and we're glad we did. This market is full of little shops selling everything from food to souvenirs. And that at much lower prices than at most other shops (and there's room to haggle). Bought some t-shirts here, fridge magnets, and loads of wooden stuff, stuff that sold for at least double the prices in most tourists shops. And the best place of the market is a little coffee seller in a corner, where you can have fresh coffee wrapped in a nice package, best souvenir from Costa Rica.
I saw a lot of people suggesting this was a dangerous place, but I didn't think it felt unsafe at all. Yes, I'm sure there's pick pockets around, but you'll find them everywhere, just use your common sense. The most likely person to empty your wallet is yourself, cos you will want to buy everything in here!
