San Camilo Market is colapsing because too much tourists are visiting it in groups just to take pictures. Workers do not feel comfortable about this. In order to keep sustainable tourist, we encourage you to visit the market only if you are going to aquire productos like fruits, food, or souvenirs. We are not taking groups anymore.
