“The town of Monterrico has several small shops for food and clothing if something is forgotten or plans were changed. The actual town of Monterrico is simple but has lots to offer by way of small shops for food and clothing if something is forgotten or plans were changed. There are also several ice cream places and "tourist" shops. For Easter (semana santa) sometimes there are some Henna Tattoo groups that apear in the town and do a great job with temporary tattoos. But for big holidays there is a lot of traffic and not many places to park so we recommend walking.”
