Overall: it's a typical beach-town vacation spot. It's morphed into a "safe" space for people who think other countries are dangerous. What that means is it's overrun with tourists, hawkers are trying to sell you shit at all times, and most everything is overpriced and overrated. I had the worst crab I've ever eaten in my life, twice, here.
