Lots of shops, pharmacies, bars & restaurants in walking distance. Park at the $5 "safe parking lot" and wander around. It was a fun place.

Restaurants are pretty good here. The shops are just souvenir stores that all sell pretty much the same stuff. Good for a walk on a nice day.

OK for quick souvenirs but for nice mexican made items and better prices to the Chollo Mall. Nice quality and shopkeepers will negotiate prices. Be prepared to pay to use Bano

Old port is where all the fish markets are, cheap fresh fish and shrimp. Lots of bars if you want to party, and lots of small stores selling junk no one wants. It is OK for an hour or two to just walk around, and...More
