This is where our hotel was at. Lots to see and do. Shopping everywhere. Walking distance to everything. A lot of hotels in this area. Very very good places to eat. A lot of fun.

Most of the hotels, bars, and restaurants are in this area and just about anything you want or need can be found here. Beach is ok although some vendor hassle but that is to be expected.
