“just shopped and had a few beers up town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Lots of shopping and you can barter. Take an open air taxi to town and it is not crowded or hot. You can see everything easily.

“Golden Zone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Great place for tourists to get about anything one would need. Shopping is okay, a lot of the same stuff you see in any Mexican town.Michael's is an exceptionally nice store and the customer service is excellent. Plenty of good restaurants and easy to walk or get a ride by pulmonia, taxi or bus. Felt very safe!

“Boring boring boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

You could be in any western beach town . . . too many shops with all the same crap. Too many restaurants. Too many highrises. Too many geriatrics. Too much hard sell and touting. Not the place for people wanting to see Mexico. Way too American
