Overview

The most authentic shopping experience is Lima is the magnificent Miraflores Indian Market and you can enjoy a wonderful visit with this transport service. You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the Indian Market near Miraflores Park. Browse the myriad stalls selling craft products, silverware and traditional clothing, and maybe take home that sought-after souvenir or gift.

The Indian Market is a huge, sprawling labyrinth of small vendors spread across an entire city block. Exploring this maze of stalls is an adventure in itself. Be dazzled by the seductive silver jewellery and the quaint wooden figurines that make ideal toys. Often, you will hear the sound of Andean panpipe music will wafting through the air. This is the Peru of lore as you mingle and haggle with the descendants of the ancient Incas.

A stroll through the market is a feast of colours with seemingly every shade known to mankind represented in the astonishing array of clothing made from alpaca wool. The alpaca is a species related to camels, which produces some of the world’s finest fibres. The baby alpaca variant is made from the even finer wool of young alpacas while vicuña wool is considered the finest of all. Choose from beautiful displays of ponchos, shawls, jumpers, scarves and the ubiquitous chullo, the woolly hats with ear flaps that are the trademark symbol of the Andes. You will also find traditional handmade wooden sculptures and colourful painted goods. Prices tend to be standardised but it pays to haggle a bit and do some bargaining.
