  • Frankly nothing to see, nothing to do, it's dirty and without bad, it is disorganized and crowded world. Avoid.

  • Nice market that offers many types of fruit and food to buy. Only open till 4 week days, and around noon on weekends. Worth taking a look around.  more »
  • It is an interesting space to search for food and fresh fish. Here buy all the owners of the restaurants on the island. The vendors are friendly and the weather is a true market. It is next to the dock walking about 5 blocks from the port where securing the ferries and cruise ships.
