Just started using this, mainly because my NEXUS 7 only has GPS and WiFi, and I needed an offline map for Venezuela. Now I am editing my part of Caracas !
Awesome work here, glad to be part of this…

Welcome to OSM. I like using Mapillary to collect info on POI, when I’m out mapping.

Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
There is a great amount to learn about the best practices for OSM mapping. I’ve looked at a lot of your first edits/additions to the map.
May I respectfully suggest you read up on the correct way to tag opening hours, if not done correctly they are of no use to the project. Same with telephone numbers.
Names should not be all capitol letters even if they appear so on shop fronts, (you have most of your correct.
Areas, the landuse of the area should be tagged and the area precisely drawn, (I’m looking at the marina).
Lastly it’s a good idea to write comments to your changesets so others will have an idea what you are trying to do and most importantly where your information comes from.
Best to take your time and get things right.
Regards & Happy Mapping
