From the main plaza it’s just four blocks to the north to get to the artesanal market which surrounds the Santo Domingo church. The market feels like a labyrinth.. and once you find yourself in front of the beautiful facade of Santo Domingo. Don’t miss...More

The markets outside are a must see! The church itself is filled with gold plated walls and shouldn't be missed but the markets are the main draw here. Be sure to try and drive a hard bargain but expect stiffness on certain items (e.g cushion...More
