As I've said - shopping isn't my thing. But we came here a couple of years ago to eat. I took photos from the car because the pink and beige architecture intrigued me.

There are nearly 40 brand-name and independent shops, including Victoria’s Secret, Blockbuster Music, Banana Republic, and The Cheesecake Factory. There is also an AMC cinemaplex, an Automated Teller Machine, and covered parking. We parked on the street at a meter which was probably cheaper.

The website below, which has a panorama camera in the courtyard says: "If you like white clothes, stop at the White House; if you dress in black, drop by the Black Market. Ground-level kiosks bulge with beads, incense, herbs, and cigars. Upstairs are the restaurants and nightspots, which stay hopping until 2am. The spacious and welcoming brick-paved courtyard plays host to live music every night and on weekends. There is always something to keep your attention. Bands and musicians perform inside the nightclubs and in the courtyard. Artists, musicians, sports stars, and visiting celebrities stroll through the beautiful terraces, which are highlighted with Victorian-style lamps.

"Outdoor cafes grace every level, inviting guests to enjoy the tropical sea breezes. Second-floor Tu Tu Tango, an indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar, resembles a starving artist’s studio in Spain. Blank canvases hang from the ceiling and original paintings dot the walls. Local artists paint at their easels in the middle of the mayhem."
