Shopping in Nicaragua: The Masaya Markets

Shop like a local while in Nicaragua.   The Masaya markets are located only 25 minutes away from Jicaro Island Eco Lodge in the town of Masaya.   Here you can find two large open-air markets with artwork, jewelry, hammocks, clothes, books, cigars, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

The two markets are separated by about a 5-minute walk and each has a few differences.   One of the markets is more popular with tourists because there are more products made by local artisans.   This market is more expensive than the other market that features fruits, vegetables, household items, as well as artwork and products made by local artisans.

Both markets can be enjoyed in a short amount of time and are a great experience for you to remember your Nicaraguan vacation.   Don’t forget to buy all of your friends gifts!
