The love of my life brought me here for my birthday in November and it has been an absolutely fantastic vacation getaway from all the fast paced life at home. The beauty of Malecon is indescribable from the sunsets to the sunrises. The boardwalk is easy to negotiate and there is a local tavern or eatery within a few steps... More

You must remember that during off season many of the places are closed down. So you may have done your research on what restaurants to visit and get down there and many are close. There are those open that have all year long owners that you will enjoy. It's only a few blocks long or better say a quarter of... More

The Malecon is not a great seawall for strollers to cruise around for hours as the word implies in most Latin American countries.

Plenty of dining options at all prices. A lovely evening walk along the paved path that lines the coast. We also purchased some local crafts from artist set up there. Very pleasant.

You can either begin or end your day trip or visit with a stroll through the Malecon de la Esperanza. Day or night is an area where you will see local action in the many restaurants, food kiosks and souvenir shops.
