I found this to be a disappointing port. A 30+ minute shuttle ride drops you off at a modern mall. Stores and look could have been in the US. We didn't do a shore excursion because the price seemed high for what you got. I like ports where you can explore on your own, this one was too difficult.

Had the excursion from hell, traffic is crazy, felt liked we were going to be killed several times. Private tour for 8 turned into public tour for 12, did not feel very safe. Again another industrial port.
