This is your typical Mexican tourist town. Once you have seen one, you have seen them all. The shopping was good, but haggling was virtually non-existent. The Mango-Mango restaurant was at the center of activity..
Don't Miss: "The Black Pearl" (figure that one out)
3 out of 5
It was a neat place for a first timer.......on a second visit, I might not leave the ship. Just was small and not alot happening.....
Don't Miss: Trying to see one of the many Bald Eagles....

Pros: Activities, Casino, room

Cons: too many photo locations, hard to find the aft dining room

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
