It is a very important touristic spot if you what to get to know and see the local products, like flowers, like birds of paradise, fruits, like passion fruit, spices, like hot Peppers, sweets, like dried hibiscus and fish, like the regional black sword-fish. The market itself is covered in vegetation, having a garden like feel to it. It has two floors, the ground floor, where the locals tend to shop and the first floor, a more foreign friendly floor, where a lot of the vendors will let you taste their products. And on the back is the fishmongers, where the aforementioned black sword-fish is sold in droves.
