There are lots of cruiser-friendly places to visit and these include Galloways, which offers a congenial atmosphere, decent free wifi and a good book swap to patrons. Club Nautico has a bar and a restaurant that opens after 4pm and also offers excellent internet. You can fill up your jugs with water from their dock and if you need any information, they are very helpful. Across the street is a fuel station where you can fill your jerry cans with gas and diesel.  Although not particularly great, there are a couple of stores that sell a variety of items that will cover most of your basic needs, including some fresh fruit and vegetables and frozen meats. There is a pharmacy, small medical centre and basic marine store within walking distance of the town.
