El Centro is where it's at

Stroll up and down the streets to see all the shops. There is a little bit of everything. All kinds of shops and restaurants.

While they had some really cool stuff on display, the second they knew you were a tourist it's like they just set out to exploit you! I was lucky enough to find a lady who was kind and not trying to take all my cash!

We had a 2 hour stop during a boat tour to the area. It was lovely and quite pretty but very tourist focused at the same time. We enjoyed some lovely lunch in one of the eateries around but be careful and check prices before you buy anything. We visited a tourist shop where a lovely man started giving us... More

We loved exploring the side streets ...and the small shops and vendors. We loved discovering the small mom and pop places to eat! We felt safe and the locals were nice and helpful. The colour, sights, sounds,smells...wonderful. The stores and markets eclectic... one cool discovery after another. We had a great time (we stayed a week on the island) and... More

After our first trip into town we stayed off the mail street and visited the side and back streets where vendors were for the most part less aggressive and more fun to help musk find treasures to bring home.. Most of the shops seem to belong to hard working families trying to support themselves great fun!

You really don't have to rent a golf cart when you get to WI, unless there is something you have researched you need to go see. We were here for two hours. Had lunch at... More

We took the ferry over for a day of exploring, and had a great time. Per some local intel, we took the bus (21 pesos for 2 people) to the Gran Terminal, maybe 10 minutes or so north of the ferry terminal in the hotel zone. Tickets cost half the price from the hotel zone. Once we arrived on Isla... More

Stopped/strolled a couple of times in afternoon and early evening with our young family. Lots of places to shop and eat; most importantly felt safe. Never hassled and local merchants were friendly and polite.
