Puerto Iguazu Arts and Crafts Market
You'll find all the usual Argentine mementos, including T-shirts, souvenir hats, and of course, the ubiquitous yerba mate bombillas. Here, however, in the Guarani heartland, these could be considered something special; the indigenous group was the first to discover mate's invigorating effects. Other Guarani crafts include fine baskets woven with geometric patterns, beautiful ceramics, aho-poi (embroidered linen cloth) napkins and blouses, and carved wooden bowls and utensils. Semi-precious stones, such as agate, topaz, and amethyst, are mined close by, and available at excellent prices either as unfinished geodes or beautiful jewelry.
