As you walk towards the Malecon you can't help but see the beautiful arches of this Plaza. Stand on the city side and take a picture of the arches as they seem to showcase the ocean behind them. Simple breathtaking!

When we went this year there were street musicians and fire dancers dressed in native clothing. The performance was fun. It's also a great place to take a break if you want to walk all of the Malecón.
