If you've been to a Mexican market before you'll know what to expect. Fun place to walk around, expect the same general trinkets you'll see with beach vendors, but with the bonus of restaurants and bars nearby. Easy place to spend an hour or two

It has tons of little stores. They def repetitive though. There are lots of people trying to sell you lots of things. Tried a little restaurant that overlooked the water called Federico's and it was just okay. Nothing special.

Lots of bargains, shopping, and haggling for the best price to be found! They also had restaurants, and views of the beach, as well as access to the marina.

This is not a large area. Basically 3 blocks long. The food is awesome especially the shrimp. They do have $25.00 all you can drink all day, so if you are spending the day around it is well worth the money.

We came and bought shrimp every morning. The traditional stores ate nearby. The port offers souvenir shopping for all things Mexico. Plenty of options for fine cuisine too.

Dirty tourist trap with cheap over-priced trinkets made in China. Vendors are pushy and will try to rob you blind. GREAT restaurants though so if you're hungry, it's worth a visit. Eat at Sr. Amigos and get the shrimp ceviche!

We stopped in Old Port after a morning on the dunes. We had a great lunch at Pedro's and then did some shopping! We did not go on the weekend but I am sure it would be amazing on a weekend evening!

Good to walk around the stores and take pictures of el Malecon. they have free parking and offer a lot of boat rides and party boats. YOu can eat there or buy shrimp or sea food to cook at the hotel or home.

The artwork and sea side news are beautiful. Lots of local wares--a bit touristy--and busy. Plenty of places to eat and drink or just enjoy a walk along the water. Even saw seals playing and plenty of Pelicans diving for fish. Even to just slowly drive thru is fun
