For a slower pace it is great, except that sometimes, it is way to slow.
I do agree with Rich about going local, unless you can't do without certain things. After all, most people that want to experience something outside their comfort zone, this is one of the ways to do it, it is not bad but way different than some fast paced places including BA.
Also i'd like to mention that many things are a lot cheaper than in the city considering you have less options but not necessarily less quality, however, all services are more expensive( gas, water, electric.) but you get free garbage service( included in your local taxes)
