So glad you enjoyed... we do have some great free parking monitored many hours-- if you don't see a spot in front, there is much more around back. Thanks for the positive review.

Loved the ferry ride over, even in the rain. Once there, it poured! However, there were enough shops and places to eat to enjoy our stay. If weather was better, would have visited more of the beaches here.

Great place to shop. Easy walking distance from the ferry. Lots of eclectic shops, no high pressure like in the open market. Better quality items.
