Some great shops and handy ATM, plus money exchange, within Laguna area and on shuttle service! Found 'good' souvenirs, very friendly staff, and willing to barter. 'General store' had good selection - groceries, cosmetics and medical items, alcohol, very handy.

This little shopping centre caters for odds and ends. The little family mart is open 24/7 however while it is handy they often run out of common items like milk and bread.

I visited this place on Saturday before noon but was surprisingly quiet. There should be no more than 10 visitors! We spent 30 minutes to buy some souvenirs and return to our villa by shuttle bus (every 30 mins).

Come over here and have a coffee which is much cheaper than the hotels within Laguna. Also beers are cheap in the mini mart.

Two mini Marts have snacks, beers and 'wine' which are reasonable prices. If you enjoy tripping over cobble stones and walking through a ghost town from 1980 then this is your un-attraction. Don't bother otherwise.
