Fun food
Kids will love the French fries - they are made fresh from the delicious local potatoes (potatoes originated in the Andes). For drinks, try the local soft drink, FlorAvanti, and fresh orange juice. Ice cream in fruit flavors such as coconut and pineapple are good. Sample the wide variety of tropical fruits, large papayas, guavas, passion fruit, mangos, local bananas.

Shopping
Look for painted wooden animals such as parrots and toucans, Andean flutes and drums, CDs of Andean music, pottery figurines, dolls, handwoven sweaters and ponchos, silver and beaded jewelry, miniature fluffy llamas.
