We were there a few years ago, it was pretty dumpy at the dock. There was a make-shift flea market with everyone wanting you to buy something and I don't remember any shops at all there at that location. I did buy several bags of the Costa Rican coffee at this flea market. It was only $2 a bag and was packaged and sealed as it would be in the U.S. Seemed safe. It was the BEST coffee. Wish I had bought more.
Went on a private tour to a banana plantation and around the area. Was good.
