Great people watching walk

We had time after a dive to have lunch and walk along the boardwalk. The vendors were sometimes pushy but overall the scenery was great and the people watching was splendid.

Honestly? There's not really much to do here. You have to pay for a water taxi which was around 7 dollars each.

The plan was to go for a nice walk see the shops and then do some snorkeling. The water taxi was very easy. Right off the cruise ship was the place to buy tickets (wristband good for a whole day of back and forth for 7 bucks each) very easy on and off. However when you get to the boardwalk... More

The shops around the boardwalk are more expensive than those on the main street shopping street, which is one block back from the boardwalk. You can shop until you find a store with the best price. Prices are negotiable and their usually willing to give you "their best price." If you're willing to ask, you're likely to find what you... More
