2 years ago when we docked in Cristobal, we were standing on the pier and noticed about 20 cruise ship employees sprinting from the ship, with such commotion, to grab taxi's to take them to what I was told was the Free Trade Zone for shopping. We did not go then due the inability to find out more info about it. Apparently there are good deals on shoes, clothes electronics etc.
Does anyone know more about this? Such as where? transportation? how far from pier? is it really as good as they said? etc.
19 cruises total on all different lines including RCCL, NCL, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America and Sea Dream. Our 20th Cruise is October 2007 on the Mariner of the Seas.
Thanks Mike for your answer. Have you been? or heard of anyone that has been? And if you have or know anyone, do you know if it is good stuff?
