We went to kill some time and we weren't disappointed. Nice shops and super friendly people. We ate at the luncheria and it was delicious. Go there if you have the time..

Great food. Fun atmosphere. Authentic. I like to check out local markets to see the authentic version of area foods. This place did not disappoint. Lot's oa small restaurants selling similar foods which were as authentic as authentic can be.

We were looking for a seafood market. My wife saw Mercado Municipal discussed on a (sailboat) cruiser's blog. When we found it (lots of one-way streets), we found inside the building a collection of seafood and meat markets, vegetable and fruit markets, dry and canned...More
