Do yourself a favor and allow yourself A LOT of time here. You will not believe just how big and meandering this incredible market is. Everything and anything from fried Pollo to traditional handcrafts to vacuum cleaners can be found within the narrow alleys and packed stalls.
Chi Chi's famed market happens every Thursday and Sunday and it seems everyone in the country bus's in from every corner.
Make sure if you drive to park near the entrance of town and walk down, otherwise you will be stuck in chicken bus gridlock.
Bring lots of cash and ideas of all the folks back home you can buy gifts for. Then reenergize with a fruit smoothy and fired chicken!
