FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This is the place to browse and bargain for souvenirs.
  • The sea side, with its sculptures, is a good place to walk. On the other side of the street, browse the shops selling pottery, paper mache fruit, wood carvings, brightly colored hammocks and lots of silver.
