This is a nice apartment in a regular neighborhood. It is not in the tourist area. It is just outside of town near the old Marina. If you like to walk this place may be fine but after checking in I ended up renting a car because Carnival was on and even though staying there was out of the crowd and noise it was just a bit too much walking for us. We were warned by a local also. You need to be careful after dark as it appears the local kids like to party down at the end of the street and may or may not cause problems. We noticed activity there at night but did not experience any problems. I would stay here again when the town is crowded. Otherwise I might try to get closer to the Malecon.
