Port Lacaya was fun for shopping and sightseeing.

Quick Tips:

We took a glass bottom boat ride. We got a chance to see an underwater wreck and many of the fish... I was disappointed that my camera did not show the colors as we saw them. The sightseeing tour of the area was interesting. You have to try Conch Fritters.

Best Way To Get Around:

The taxi prices were inconsistent... ask before you jump in, the prices tended to change from driver to driver. Once in Port Lacaya walking is the best bet... wander around the hotel located across from the market... they offer some beautiful views.
