Good entertainment and lots if shops around. Night life is good as the hotel just offers animation shows which are basic.

The Corner Bar is great. The bartenders were friendly and the specials were cheap. Will definitely go to this bar again. Highly recommended.

Walking the Marketplace is amusing. All the vendors try to get you in their booths. They will call out to you and try to convince you to purchase from them. There are several restaurants to choose from. A must is Tuesday at Agave! Lots of jewelry. Definately bargain with them. My friend and I had a fun afternoon visiting all... More

I was able to bargain a nice hat that was originally $25.00 down to $11.00. Do not buy the first item you see, because there are several other shops... More

We had lunch which was not cheap, but really locally prepared and tasty. We stopped as part of a group. Challenge is: Food took nearly one hour, and we stopped only one... More

It was great to stop and watch and listen to the bands after shopping at the Straw Market. Especially since Lighthouse Pointe offered very little entertainment. There was nightly entertainment here and a great variety of bars and restaurants to choose from.
