First to Review

Just 29km (18 miles) outside of Managua, the artisan handicrafts market at Masaya is THE place to shop for all the trinkets on your souvenir gift list. From nicely-decorated pottery and ceramics to woodworks and furniture, you’ll find it in this brick gallery of serpentining stalls. Bargain for an intricately-woven hammock, the nation’s signature item. Be sure to notice the textile quality and density of the weave when comparing prices between shopkeepers. Before you leave, negotiate a pair of traditional folkloric Qüegüense dolls from Nicaraguan comic ballet, like El Toro Huaco and his beast of burden. They’re adorable.
