This place is a lovely idea but executed poorly. You would find better art at local hotel gift shops. All vendors sell the same thing, once you have seen three you have seen them all. The woodwork looked nice, however we saw no one carving...More

There were so many things to see and buy from vendors here. I wish we would have walked the perimeter of the Straw Market before stepping into individual booths. They really push you hard for a sale and most won't leave you alone until you...More

As soon as you port there is a market. And you can walk off/on board all day if you like. Or grab a cab to the beach for $2 a person Atlantis is also $2-3 cab per person.
