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

Vendors tried pulling my husband into shop after shop to sell him illegal drugs while we were walking around with our two kids. I would have enjoyed a chance to wander about and browse hassle free.

If you are in Porto Penasco, you shouldn't miss the Old Port. You won't find anything special there but you could have a nice dinner or just a drink in one of many restaurants, buy some souvenirs etc. Of course, be ready to haggle for the price. Just a hint for Cigars lovers - I purchased Cuban Cohiba 5 cigar... More

The malecon is a large pedestrian area along the waterfront. Lots of ships, vendors of various types, nice place for a stroll after dinner.

I wish I would have known more about the restaurants here before I came into the town. The street vendors were fun and my kids learned how to haggle for what they wanted.

Lots of booths selling every type of souvenir imaginable. They are willing to negotiate. For example, a bag my daughter wanted was $40. After negotiation we paid $20. Every purchase we made was lowered when we started to leave without it. The food there is great. If you like shopping, you will love this place.

Many options for shopping however once you have seen one shop you have basically seen them all. One the opposite side of the street you will see more restaurants and vendors with fresh shrimp and others options. Worth seeing if in area however we didn't spend more than an hour at the Port.
