* Puerto Banus street market

The Puerto Banus street market will be open tomorrow, however I am told that some stands will not be out due to the fact that many people will be home cooking preparing for Christmas dinner. So, it may or may not be a great place to visit tomorrow. I would still take my chances if you need to pick up some last minute items, but just keep in mind that it is an unusual market day.
