We had a coffee here in the market at Montes place with a harbour view. The tables and chairs were concrete and would not be moved in a hurry, but we had a good cup of hot tasty coffee at a very reasonable price of $6 for two. Most of the tables are under cover (it seems to rain a lot here!) A nice visit.

I would recommend if you want to do some shopping, get out of the cruise of port shopping mall and walk 2 blocks down to the open air market. The people down here were much nicer. We walked around the market for about an hour and saw many different offerings and purchased a few items. Yes, you will find some similar things in other stalls but you get a chance to get out and make connections. Overall great experience that I would recommend.

We have been to this market before and enjoyed the experience. It is quite crowded with a great variety of merchandise for sale, including clothing, spices and foodstuffs. There are a lot of local crafts at very reasonable prices but you have to watch for items imported from Asia. The vendors are very friendly and not intimidating.

This was a stop on an island excursion and one we could have done without......as on many other islands when you have seen a place like this you have more or less seen them all.....we did walk around and did enjoy ourselves but would not go out of our way to return. would I recommend it? yes if you have not been to any others.....

We enjoyed the sights and aromas of this colourful place. There were exotic fruits and vegetables of all kinds on the stalls, and little collections of spices packed in calabash bowls. But you had to buy before you were allowed to take a picture.
