Taking a walk along the Malecon is beautiful. Seeing the water and the sculptures in the sand is amazing.

I am walking here every evening so to me this is like a pancake to the pancake lovers. Anyways, walk up and down on Malecon, or malecón, gives you all sorts of joy and entertaining that you barely can handle! Just go and enjoy!
