Other comments
We didn't really have an itinerary nor lodging reservations, and indeed, it is a place where you can do that as once you get off the boat, people will come to you to offer places to stay and activities to do. So if you do not have reservations, you just need your "haggle" powers to make your stay worthwhile.
