A stroll along Malecon Boardwalk allows you to immerse yourself in local life at its best. Day and night, the walkway (whose name means "esplanade along a waterfront" in Spanish) serves as the heart of the city. Many of the area's top attractions line the pedestrian-friendly promenade, including a lighthouse, several notable monuments, and the main city square. You'll also find an abundance of cafes, bars, restaruants, and beachside activities. Appreciate the rich aromas of local street food as you meander along the pathway.
