Walked off cruise ship into this market. Variety of local vendors with negotiable prices. I would recommend this market over the Lucayan market downtown. A Senor Frog's is also located in this area. Fun, festive atmosphere.

This is a typical tourist, junk market. The only redeeming thing was the conch salad at a little stand by the water. Best conch salad! Not much there otherwise but small stores for souvenirs, few restaurants, and bars.
