I read some pretty harsh comments about this place being where all the "dregs" hangout. The "societal outcasts". Once I saw the place I instantly fell in love. Sure, it's not fancy, but it's a sweet step back in time. The buildings are adorable, the restaurants are cute, and the people on the street are the MOST friendly. I felt like more locals hang out here than at the Malecon in Esperanza, which I found to be super touristy (but still nice).
In particular, we loved Abe's for drinks (especially at Sunset), Bieke Bistro (formerly El Patio) for dinner (sooooooooooo good!), and Rays for coffee and breakfast. Also, I bought a really cute dress and jewelry at the Funky Beehive, and some groceries at the big, by island standards, grocery store there.
Speaking of all of these places, every single person who worked at every single one of these places were over the top friendly.
