This place has lots of bars, restaurants, live music, shops (like Chinatown in NY), jewelry stores, etc. They all offer you free tequila to come shop in their stores but don't accept the first price, they will ALWAYS go down.

Get pesos, you will save significantly. Also refrain from using credit cards, I had two different cards compromised while on Isla this last November.

Yes lots. It's really grown in the last 5 years so you will be in for a shock how much it has grown. Both good and bad. Probably over 50 restaurants/ vendors on el Centro. There is a small shack on the corner that says... More
