Shopping In Cusco - Shopping Cusco - Peru

Shopping in Cusco can be an overwhelming experience. There is an abundance of budget-priced artisan markets-where bargaining is customary-found mostly in little courtyards set just back from the street, especially on Calles Triunfo, Plateros and Procuradores, all just off the Plaza de Armas, as well as around Plaza San Blas. Then there's the many enormous, teeming markets, selling anything from juices and $1 lunches to souvenirs, household goods, pirated DVDs and clothes. In addition, if you can afford to spend a little more, you can find some excellent quality jewelry and genuine alpaca products in many of the more up-market stores dotted around Plaza de Armas and San Blas. Outside of Cusco, the towns of Pisac and Chinchero have excellent markets-Pisac's giant artisan market (held on Thursdays and Sundays) is an experience not to be missed. Chinchero's market-Sundays only-is smaller but, with far less tourists, it's much more authentic.
