Shopping and payment methods
Shopping
Traditional handmade objects are the best souvenir, cloth and other ornament made from silver or sea shells. Interesting object of wood and cheramics, handmadecan be found along the coast. If you go shopping shoes or clothes, shop prizes won't pleasently suprize you. If you aren't interested in design clothes we suggest to search small boutics and local market. Prizes are much better and during season choice is rather big.
