Looking for fresh fish options for home grilling when we arrive. Is the Fish Trap market closed? I found Calabash Market in a search, how are they? any info on fish markets appreciated!

Homemade Meals to Go in the Isola building in Coral Bay has great fish. Dave takes whole fish, breaks them down, and vacuum bags the portions. He also does prepared food and meals.

Calabash Market has been good for fresh fish and they have been trying to maintain good fresh meats as well.

Cheers, RickG

Thanks Rick! Another question...when all 4 of us like to "unwind" here it's Uber of course, without that service there, how are the evening taxi services? back in the day we always found taxi's scarce in the evening. Our villa is in Rendezvous Bay area. Thanks

thanks Rick! I'll ask about hours of operation at the taxi stand when we arrive. We'll probably just do 1 or 2 nights by taxi. Are you moving your boat soon? if you guys are around August might grab a beer??

Regrets, we head south next week. We'll be back for Halloween. Another time!
