  • It is very interesting, there are crafts of all kinds, make you price by quantity, people are really nice, that if you do a step and want to sell everything.

  • Walk through the day leaves no time to stop at the small city center. The narrow streets are traffic by numerous electric carts and bikes with some pedestrian streets where business goods packed exhibit them for tourists. The houses are low and colourful which makes them very attractive. The circular plaza is the Municipal Palace and the Church of the Immaculate Conception. There is also a modern Convention Center. The ride of the brunette is a space that works as a viewpoint of the Caribbean Sea with a bronze sculpture of beautiful india which the pirate Fermín Antonio Mundaca intended and there is a bust of the discoverer of the island don Francisco Hernández de Córdoba. The North Beach is one of the best beaches in Mexico and an ideal place for a rest after the return to the island

  • A place not to be missed... Absolutely picturesque, with amazing beaches. I recommend the massages on the beach of the Center and a visit to shark beach.
