I have been coming to the SPI convention centre for years fir different occasions from dance and cheer competitions to seminars and it being to close to the ocean is simply amazing.

When at SPI, I love to go by the Convention Center to walk alone. It's peaceful and safe, there are many different animals and I enjoy taking pictures. I even saw the alligator from the Birding Center once chillaxing in the tall weeds.

For great birding, especially during Spring or Fall migrations, head to the south and west sides of the building. The vegetation there (shrubs and trees) shelters all kinds of migrants, and the water feature draws many of them out into the open for easy photography....More

Just off the circle from the convention center are two boardwalks that take you over marshes and out to the bay to see wildlife and birds. We even saw an alligator. Fun to see the bay side of the island.

The parking setup is terrible and disorganized. Small spaces and very few close to the building. The building itself has several different sized halls.

We went to the Market that was held once each month. Vendors come from all over. I got Larimar jewelry which was much cheaper than in the Caribbean.
