Travel Tips

Buy Electronics

By backpackguru on Oct 30, 2011 in Souvenirs
If you're looking to do some shopping, the main places are Av. San Blas and Camilo Recalde, where you can buy almost anything. Some people go shopping for great deals on electronics, but be very careful. Before you buy anything ask to test it out. If everything seems to work, don't give it back to the shopkeeper. Keep the item in your hand as you pay for it. Some shopkeepers will swap the item after you've played around with it, so be aware and cautious.
