For the best handicrafts in the area, go to Mercado Artesanal de Monsefú, about 14 km (9 mi) south of Chiclayo. You can buy straw hats, baskets, cotton weavings, embroidery, clay pots, wall hangings, all kinds of delicious snacks, and more. It's well worth the trip (round-trip taxi from Chiclayo, including waiting for you to shop, costs about S/35).
