Depends on the day you visit, some vendors will barter and others will not, not a huge selection but good quality leather items, sandals, purses, hand bags etc if you get the right day.

We really enjoyed the quick trip to here from our resort. We browsed and bought souvenirs and had a really great lunch, fairly cheap but really good burgers. I highly recommend it, it was called (perhaps) Burgers and Beer. It was an outdoor spot and we loved it. We also went here to the Carnival that happens on Wednesdays in... More

Beautiful market, great prices for souvenirs. Often times the indoor stores opened late and closed early. Not as many vendors mid week as there are on a weekend. The club was dead at night

You can get around it very fast, there are good deals and almost everything is handcrafted. Get from drinks to cigars, night shows, night club, bowling, restaurants and easy transportation in and out from your hotel.

The place is nostalgic with a "villa" theme. Check out the tower overlooking the beaches and the greenery. Shop, yes you can barter but boy, they are hard to bargain. You may end up friends at the end. Yes, they have a bowling alley - air conditioned, ten-pin. They have cigar shops, goodies - as in snacks, bars, restaurants. Beautiful... More
