o.k. this place is a real let-down. went into and walked around the town, which will not take you that long. yes there is poverty, but not the grinding poverty you see in REAL third world countries. was looking to spend some money here but found little or nothing to spend it on. there's a casino(yawn) and about six or seven fancy looking shops all along the front and part of the bahia-mar resort.
the cigar place was a joke, wait till you go to another island where you can buy the same ones cheaper.
of all the stops we had on the three cruises we took this time this one was the one we enjoyed least!
i really hope that N.C.L. drop it from their itinery.
