I enjoyed meeting Franco, who sold me his organic coffee from his finca Santa Juana. Very pleasant man. I enjoyed going through the market and bought more than I planned, but nobody was pushy.

We did this as part of the one Day Nicaragua tour. Most of the shop owners are nice, however if you do not know the current exchange rate, some may try to take advantage of you so like anywhere else, use caution.
