Such a beautiful island! Do not miss a tour to Isla de la Pasión it's a beauty. The best and cheapest place to take breakfast is in the Mercado Municipal.

I stayed at one of the resort further away from the plaza but I believe if you are coming in by cruise ship, you come in at the plaza, everything is within walking distance, great area.
