I was thinking that instead of doing an excursion, we might just do our own thang and go into town and walk along the malecon, visit some shops, and go on the beach. Is town within walking distance from the port or will we need to take a taxi?
Are the beaches free? Do they have facilities (restroom) nearby?
Are there any landmarks I should try and visit? Any museums in the area? I think there's a church that might be accessible.
