When you are spending time in El Salvador you might want to spend a bit of time shopping – make the most of that hire car and fill it with souvenirs! So what can you get there and which are the best bargains?
Some of the best souvenirs in El Salvador are the handicrafts. Ceramic items make great gifts to take home and the best place to pick these up is in Ilobasco. While you are here why not pick up one or two of the traditional ‘sorpresa’? These are ceramic orbs that are often decorated to resemble eggs, pine cones, apples or animals. The top of the orb lifts off and inside you will find a diorama, featuring dancers, musicians or craftsmen at work.
Alternatively you can opt for hand-painted wood items from La Palma or wicker furniture in Nahuizalco. You can pick up one of the chicken buses, a popular item in El Salvador as well as hammocks and miniature house facades. Children’s toys such as the capirucho are ideal for taking home for younger members of the family. These are hand-held wooden toys that look a little like a donut and they have proved to be strangely addictive for both children and adults alike!
If your itinerary while you have your car rental in place takes you anywhere near San Salvador you should consider a visit to the Mercado Cuartel, although it is recommended that you go there in the presence of a local. An alternative is the Mercado Nacional de Artesanias. El Salvador is not short of a shopping mall or two so if you want to treat yourself to a new outfit or two then there are plenty of outlets to choose from. Do not expect to see a lot of brands that you recognise – most of the stores tend to be Central American store chains rather than those you would spot in the US or Europe.
Most shops are open from 8.30 am and will close at 8pm. This tends to be just Monday to Saturday as Sunday shopping is very limited. Small local shops may be open till later in the evening. Generally there will be no problem paying with a credit card in one of the larger outlets but smaller stores and craft markets do not accept them. Never let your credit card out of your sight as skimming is a common problem here.
