Exploring A Market In The Heart Of Managua
Roberto Huembes Market
After waiting in line for 2 hours at the immigration office, paying the fine, and receiving a visa extension, my friend Alexandra and I decided to visit the Roberto Huembes Market to do some shopping for Nicaraguan food.
A taxi dropped us off outside, and we walked into the corrugated steel-roofed labyrinth of stalls.
Passing clothing merchants, electronics repair men, jewelry makers, and hammock ladies, we found ourselves in the meat section. Giant raw slabs of beef were hung out on display.
Enough steak for 10 people was available for the bargain price of only $30 US!
