some love it...some hate it...
Be sure to see the flea market, the best of any port I have been to and very good prices.
Ride the double decker bus...$3 for a city tour...but remember to duck when they say duck..
1) Walk four blocks from the Flea Market, and you will find a nice long beach. Not toys or chairs, but some of the Restaurants will have some chairs set up you can rent...beautiful beach, but the water is not the crystal blue and looks more like water you see here in the USA...nice access to food and bars across the street and not a lot of people there. Also, the famous $20 massages can be found here.
2) Slicer Beach Club is about a 10 minute ride from the flea market. I have not been there, but have got great reviews from friends. Very nice quiet beach, pool, (an all you can eat/drink option is available for around $45 a day)
3) Reef Beach Club is a 40 minute ride, but is supposed to have more things to do, and a nicer pool. Also has a buffet. Don't know anyone who has been there, so I am only reading some reviews.
