    A MUST shopping stop in Cusco
    I found this store by chance on a quiet street of San Blas 2 min from Plaza de Armas when I already spent a lot of time n Cusco and knew the prices and quality range of peruvian handicraft from the stores around the Plaza to a huge artizanal center down Ave El Sol. Ekekos was beyond any expectations. It is a compact store with a huge selection of items from magnets (exquisite) to coats and all kinds of things in between. The quality is top notch and the prices are reasonable. Moreover, they have "real"" discounts (not "50% off today" as a sign in every alpaca store announces, which gives you a price still higher than reasonable after applying that discount). Ekekos different discounts for different items make the prices very attractive. The staff is not annoying while helpful when asked for help. Unfortunately, I already bought a lot of things, but still found some treasures there. Highly recommended!

    Great shop for quality alpaca knitwear souvenirs
    There's a great selection of blankets / sweaters / hats / gloves and more in this shop, and the staff could not have been kinder. I was searching for a sweater to bring back to my husband and they helped pull lots of options and let me use the wifi to text pictures back to him for his approval. No pressure and just excellent service. My only regret is that I didn't have enough space in my luggage to buy more - the beautifully colored alpaca throws are a special treat.

    Best Shop in Cusco
    I wandered through several shops on my last day in Cusco and felt like I hit the jackpot when I found Ekekos San Blas. The items were high quality and fairly priced. I purchased the majority of the gifts I took home from Ekekos, but also several beautiful things for myself, too! Wonderful service and great selection of merchandise. If I'd only taken an empty suitcase on my trip, I'd have bought more! Next time :)

Amazing selection of high quality artifacts made/sourced locally. Great help/suggestions while shopping. Melissa, Yaja, y Anelhi were amazing during our trip. We came back again to buy some gifts and ceramic decorations for our home. We’re so thrilled to be going home with such amazing treasures.
