  • Great for souvenirs. Mostly tourists. Stalls seem to repeat after a while so if you’re not sure about something, keep walking. You’ll come across it again. Don’t buy from the first vendor you see. Some will bargain. Some won’t. Not a great selection of food. The swap meet is a circle so you’ll end where you began. It’s all in the parking lot of the stadium, nothing on the field.
  • Sort of a tourist trap, but still a great place to pick up souvenirs. $1 entrance per person (parking included). Don't forget to negotiate the price, especially if you're there later in the day, and especially if you're purchasing multiple items. Many of the same item will vary widely in price from one stand to the next.
  • It was easy to find and exit using Google maps. The swap meet is filled with multiple tents with a variety of tourist related products. Food, drink, t-shirts, cloths, wood works, ocean related items, phone accessories, travel booths and many other products. It is easy to get around and usually takes a couple of hours to see everything if you go all the way around the stadium. There are many competing booths, so it is sometimes good to look around before making your purchase, but prices are basically similar, and you can barter with most vendors. You will find many of the same products for two or three times the price at the local hotels and ABC stores, so hit the Swap Meet first. They are usually open three days a week depending on if the arena is being used for a special event. (Wed, Sat, Sun)
  • Get what you pay for. Swap meet here. Lots of stalls but most the same after the first 20-30. Better to stick with the outer ring of stalls. The dresses for woman are a good deal (negotiable to $12-15) and the Tshirts $20 for 7.
  • They have a really great variety of neat stuff at a great price! If you're looking for locally made goods be careful. A lot of the stuff was made in other countries. Just ask. Some of the vendors do sell goods they hand made themselves
