Visiting San Camilo Market is a MUST for any visitor. But we want the market to keep its escence: sell products. It is not a museum. With so many tours visiting the place and NOT BUYING, the economy is being afected. So we are not taking you there as a Tour anymore. As a social responsible company, we will help the market to subsist. You can plan your own visit and act as a local: spend some money. Enjoy taking a delicious breakfast with local arthesanal bread. Or buy your fruits and supplies. As more you buy, as better the economy of the market, as longer it will last. Cooperate with local economy. Don t just take pictures.
