Walked through here on a recent cruise port day, we had a list of things we wanted to get, but found that the jewellery was not all that cracked up to be. Shopped for other gifts and nick knacks for family and friends. Great for duty free alcohol, can't believe it's so cheap here. None of the staff pushed you into sales which was a relief. Spend a 1-2 hours browsing and purchasing and then go to one of the beautiful beaches.

There are many jewlery stores with excellant prices and selection. You also can find clothing, cameras and liquor. Quaint little street with many shops and good places to eat.

We went here while looking for jewelry and trinkets. Be advised that if cruise ships are in port it will be super busy. There are a ton of people trying to get you to go into each store. Best bet is to know what you are looking for and do your research ahead of time so that you go to a decent jewelry store. There are a ton of places to get a bite to eat or a drink. Take the time to enjoy the shopping. Walking can be tough and this isnt really a place for wheelchairs as it is uneven and you cannot really walk in the street. Also, it can get very hot and if it rains you will need to duck into a store.

What my father used to call a "tourist trap". All the same junk you see in every other place cruise ships stop. Same old stuff 9K gold sold as 14K cuban cigars rum and overpriced duty free high end watches, cameras, designer goods and electronics. Go to the beach instead.
