The best place to buy arts and crafts is in the village where the items are originally made;
for ceramics,
San Sebastián
for hammocks and
La Palma
for painted wooden boxes,
for baskets and furniture of wicker and jute. If you cannot go there in person, the markets in
San Salvador
(Mercado Ex-Cuartel and Mercado de Artesanía) sell many of these items at a slightly higher prices. Branches of Nahanché have outlets in the major shopping malls with good quality handicrafts from all over the country.
