What a fun festive place. We heard music there two different times. Very enjoyable. It’s a nice stage with a clean area to watch the entertainment. The colorful buildings around are fun to see you too!

Very colorful buildings that you would expect in the Caribbean. Excursion from our cruise ship and several beautiful yachts at the Marina. A band was practicing as we walked the area which made for a festive visit. Several restaurants and bars and nice walking area.
