A buzzing hive of commercial activity, this covered market is as much of a full-immersion experience as a shopping destination. Come here for everything from souvenir T-shirts and plastic tchotchkes (if you must) to exotic flowers, local coffees, fresh-squeezed juices, and handcrafted leather goods hidden within labyrinthine recesses in the back of the market. If you ever have a shadow of a doubt, the Mercado's tropical fruits and unmistakable handicrafts will confirm that you are, in fact, in Central America—not just any tropical vacation spot.
