It was actually the teeny 'down-town' of Isla that made me fall in love with the Island and the people. Just a few blocks long & wide but the people and the hidden little 'joints' are priceless. Don't limit yourself to Ave. Hidalgo....the side streets and neighbouring streets are just as much fun. All of the vendors soon remember seeing you so after a day they soon just smile and wave and stop 'hawking' their wares. Humour all of the silver shop owners and just go on in and browse.....they'll give you a shot of tequila.....thus saving you money on your bar tab. If you do want to wine and dine with all of the bells and whistles and a higher bill (none of them high by USA or Canada standards) then stick to Ave. Hidalgo. If you want some REALLY great home-style foods cooked with love and with some real inexpensive prices then you need to look at the neighbouring streets. My policy is when I see the locals lining up to eat someplace then THAT is the place to go. Ave. Hidalgo restaurants can be really good...but they are for the visitors.
