Got the bus here from Playa del Inglis. Spent about 45 to 50 minutes wandering the stalls. Usual fair. Bought some sunglasses, leather belts and a wallet. Some stall sellers have fixed prices and these are often the true locals. Didn't get into bartering with...More

Awful market. Full of rubbish. Nice town with a few beautiful cafes overlooking the sea. Very easy to take the bus there from Maspalomas.

Very average. No one was buying. Not great, wish I'd stuck to mogan..! Taxi from puerto rico was six euro. There also road works both ways so be careful about travelling peak.

We visited last Tuesday expecting to find a local traditional market but instead found a busy market with cheap 'curios' and lots, fake handbags and clothes. Very disappointing. It was very busy in town which made parking extremely difficult. I'd definitely avoid going. It put...More

This market was predominantly clothes and fake designer handbags. Not recommended if you are looking for local crafts and food.

WSorry, we had a car..The market was ok but the harbour area was worth the visit anyway. Get a price from the taxi driver before you go. For him it will be a one way fare, might be reluctant to go.
