Its a nice Malecon but I really believe that they need to pay attention to gardens and water of the river to clean it

The small thin strip of gardens were designed very well. They buffered the street had interesting plants to look at and the area was calming. You can even feed the ducks/birds.

A typical Malecon with lots to see and do, plus a lot of shopping, food, and activities going on. A fun spot to people watch and get some shopping in, with okay views over the river which is a bit dirty.

Nice to walk with our friends and visit the local shops and restaurants. Lots of local families are there to enjoy the beautiful area and the weather was perfect for a nice exploration of the local area.

We went to “malecón 2000”, and it was lovely. Walked all around, very clean and secure. Can’t miss “La Perla”.

We visited on a Saturday and the place was loaded with families with kids under 10. It was fine if you enjoy watching the little kids happily going on many rides. Moms and Dads were busy helping all have a good time

Easy to walk the length of the riverfront and grab a bite to eat, enjoy the gardens or the other amenities featured (museum, theater, ferris wheel etc.)
