Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

The old naval port, somewhat out of the way, but seems plenty to do there. We took taxi to Horseshoe Bay beach so didn't seem much of the island. Beach was beautiful, supposed to have pink sand, couldn't say that we found it very pink. Found locals to be polite and very helpful. Docks seemed organized and controlled so travelers feel safe in making transportation decisions if not on tours.

This was our shopping port and we were not disappointed. Water taxi's to the town were plentiful and were was no waiting, so being docked a little out of town wasn't an issue. Shopping was good, enough going on to keep the grandkids happy. Most stores offered drinks which was helpful. Again felt safe and found everyone polite and helpful. We were lucky we were the only ship in port this day.

Crowded port with 3 large ships in, traffic was grid locked. We'd decided to walk to El Morro and explore. Weather was extremely hot but once at the castle we cooled down in air conditioned theater, staff were excellent and we found it very interesting. Had visited town before but found it much cleaner than previously. Only one beggar in streets which was a pleasant surprise. Great town to walk around, narrow cobbled streets and quaint stores. Lots of history a good town to explore.
