After visiting there five years ago I swore I'd never go back but I'm so glad I did! They have completely rebuilt the docking area that was destroyed in previous hurricanes and developed in a nice multi-store fashion. I felt less "guard" presence (no M16's this time) and felt comfortable browsing the shops. Was met by our excursion host, Miguel, who was excellent, very good communicator and very helpful ~ took great care of us. I really thought it was great. Would like to see better prices on merchandise but that's the only real improvement I can see needs to be made. Did not venture into the city at large.
