A few days into the trip we ran low on water and headed to the city. We took the boat back to San Pedro. It was very ghetto compared to the US. The buildings where in terrible shape, the roads were barely cobblestone, trash everywhere. It didn't seem like a very safe place to be alone or at night. No one had cars either. A few people drove around on golf carts, otherwise you were on a rusty bike or walking. I walked around in a small group and explored some of the local shops. The prices were very different from what I expected. Alcohol was very very cheap, and food was expensive. Well, none local food. They had stuff we would see in the US, like coke, candy, pringles, but all of that was expensive. Alcohol and local food was extremely cheap.
Most of the restaurants tried to lure us in by offering free rum drinks. The local cigar shop lured us in by offering free shots. The internet cafe was the closest thing to civilization I had seen in almost a week. There were street signs sometimes to help you get around, but they weren't really helpful.
