Reviewed April 20, 2013

The shops here resemble the junk sold at cruise ship ports. there was nothing that appeared hand crafted or original. waste of time.

“Fun Day”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to the market just to look around. I had visitors from Iowa, with two teen girls. We all had so much fun. Lots to look at, lots to buy. And the prices were astonishingly good. I'll not wait so long to return.

“Too much gaudy junk”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I had envisioned a market with items that I could purchase as souvenirs. Every store that we went in had almost the same junky merchandise. Just not for me.

“Oh dear....!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Went to Mexican Market full of hope of finding something interesting to take back to the UK, after three stores realised that one can never own too many ceramic suns, lizards or jokey tee shirts! Nothing with any style at all, but we did spend a happy half hour spotting all the knock offs we have seen being made in Bali in Indonesia! Perhaps I was expecting too much from a market environment, but surely someone there can spot the opportunity for goods with a bit of thought and originality?
