This is a typical port with shopping available at the pier and an $8.00 cab ride gets you to some additional shopping areas. You get harassed by vendors at each store, but for the most part a simple "no thank you" sends you on your way. Senor Frogs and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville are here and are great places to stop ... as well as the famous Ron Jon Surf Shop.
From the 2.5 hour bus ride and being bombarded by "vendors" every 3 feet is NOT what I expected or wanted from this experience. Our tour guide was pretty good, and he knew the area, but the fact that we were trapped on a bus for 2.5 hours meant that we were a captive audience. Then, to be harassed by every vendor in the city as we walked around the ruins was really a turn off. My wife and I just wanted to get back to the ship and the 2 hours we spent there was just "blahhh".
