Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Stroll along Malecon, one of the town's most attractive strips, bordered on one side by the harbor. The boardwalk offers sights of some of the town's key architectural sights, as well as the bustle of activity as the boats dock and unload. Feel the replenishing sea breeze as you browse the many stalls selling local handicrafts, ideal as souvenirs. Take a break at one of the restaurants with harbor views, and settle down with some regional cuisine and a cold drink.
