We tried to book with Carnival, but everything we were interested in was booked quickly. We took a taxi, $5.00 pp to the shopping area. We ended up walking around and went to an area promoted as a straw market. We were told by the locals that straw baskets were the only souvenirs made on the island and they did the decorating. They were willing to barter in some of the booths. We walked to the beach to put our feet in as the water was too cold (70o) to swim. There is also a casino in the same area. There were some eating places, but we decided to go back to the ship to eat lunch. Our daughter and son-in-law with the ATV excursion through the ship and was totally ripped off. They paid $60.00 pp to ride a 4-wheeler around a field. There was no trails.
