  • If you are looking for everything and more with Ecuadorian culture, this is the place! They have delicious food, amazing clothing, and great location so you don't get lost! I could buy things for myself, leisure, and clothes for a baby at affordable prices!
  • Contrary to popular belief, don't go here on a saturday. They are open 7 days a week and it's much calmer and prices are much more negotiable on non-Saturdays. Ecuadorian blanket heaven. Colors Colors.
