Many of the embroidered shirts/blouses are made in india. The "Made in India" tags on most of the have been removed. Just be sure what you are buying. We did get a very good deal on a white Ecuadorian hat and a leather handbag.

Many different stalls of inexpensive trinkets as well as higher quality homemade merchandise. Nice inexpensive belts, onyx figures, paintings, t shirts, alpaca stuffed animals, carvings, etc. Something for everyone. Seems safe. Don't forget to bargain!
