5 Nicaraguan Souvenirs You Probably Won't Want to Buy
I spotted these rare and lovely pieces at one of the shops in Catarina. When we looked at the girl in the shop with questionable expressions on our faces she described them as “erotica”. These unique ceniceros (ashtrays) sell for just $6 USD.
I’m not really sure what use one would have for these rare and interesting baskets, but I am sure of one thing, at $60 USD they don’t come cheap!
“EL BANO” PAINTINGS
These masterpieces come in all sizes. I had to stop myself from laughing out loud when the shop owner told me the price for a piece this size (16″ X 20″) was $50, but he’d be willing to sell it to me – on sale – for only $40 USD.
FLOR DE CANA FROG
Whether it be Cuba, Mexico or Nicaragua we’ve all seen multiple versions of the “stuffed” frog. To ensure In Nica Now remains a family friendly website I’ve chosen to share this G-rated photo, instead of the XXX one I have. At $10 USD (including the Flor de Cana pocket rocket) I suppose you can’t really go wrong.
CUP ‘O BOOB
This exquisite hand painted coffee mug is definitely one of kind and can be yours for only $8.33 USD. Imagine the reaction you’d get from your coworkers when you walk into the coffee station with this mug in your hand.
So there you have it! A sampling of some not so beautiful treasures that can be found here in Nicaragua. If you’d like to check out some Nicaraguan souvenirs you probably will want to buy just click here.
