D'Talipapa Market Boracay Highlights

The seafood section of D'Talipapa Market is where you'll find tanks and buckets of lobsters and crabs, and tables piled with prawns, scallops, shrimps, sea urchins, shellfish, oysters and a large selection of locally caught fishes. Be aware that vendors expect you to haggle so their quoted amount is always higher than the actual price. Prepare to negotiate and get the price down by at least 20%. Also, live seafood costs much more than their dead counterparts so if you wish to get the freshest, expect to pay a premium. Once you've purchased what aught your eye, take your haul to one of the restaurants nearby and they can prepare and cook it for you for a nominal fee. You can have it grilled, steamed, fried, buttered, or made into a soup for approximately PHP150 to PHP250 per dish.
