Took the local bus, $3 for 3 hours, good value. Market small but very busy. Excellent Mango Lassies, thoroughly recommend the LARGE one, just a $1 more than the smaller and much better value

If you have your own transportation and a couple of hours to fill this is a good use of your time. We met some family here and nibbled our way through crepes, fresh smoothies and coffees. Sadly I ran out of stomach room for the...More
