You can't even walk around feeling safe since there's dope sellers pretty much outside every store and they're not the nicest..the will aggresively try to convice you to either buy all kinds of drugs or *female* services...be respectful and take your time to properly say "NO" or they will become aggresive and even threathen you...unfortunately I learned that the hard way.. The stores are average, if you search really really good you may find somenthing cool to buy. But pretty much everything is just "Made in China" crazy overpriced merchandise. We only bought 3 key rings for $10

Very busy area. I like to look around but not when people are literally grabbing your arm to drag you into shops. You can't take two steps without a vendor nagging you for business. Evidently it's a hot spot for bouncy brownies... Jamaica would be tolerable if it weren't for the pushy vendors. I feel for the people trying to make a living but I'm not going to buy a bunch of stuff I don't have a use for.

WE spent 3 days and nights on the Hip Strip. It was quite an experience! Our hotel room was clean, thr grounds immaculate tho dated. Service everywhere we went was stellar. Forget the resorts! Go whwere the locals are! Each & every shop keeper was friendly and courteous even when we didn't buy anything! It was amazing!

This was on our way to jimmy Buffetts place( a must). The strip is made up of lots of shops full of rubbish. They tried to sell me rum in 3 shops. Telling me it was cheap, at only 100 us dollars. Well I bought it for 30 dollars else where. Always trying to say 50 percent off in our shop. Well until you get to pay..avoid like the plague...

Its an ok place to get your souvenirs not somewhere you need to be any longer than a couple of hours, some of the shop keepers can to pushy whilst others will allow you to browse at your own leisure. on the up side a beautiful beach with clean facilities and amenities went here several times throughout and spent over half the day there each time.
