The malecon is a concrete boardwalk along the beach that runs for several blocks in the heart of downtown PV. On the weekends, it is filled with locals, vendors, street entertainment, etc. A must see on on weekend evening especially Sunday.

There are many interesting sculptures along the walk, and artists also create sand sculptures in the beach below that you can can enjoy as you walk along.

Including the new "Malecon extention" it makes a pedestrian pathway that you can walk between El Centro (dowtown) to Playa Los Muertos (beach) on the south-side, right along the waterfront all the way.

I have never seen a rat on the malecon.

A few weeks ago she posted this in another forum and I asked her for more details but heard nothing back.
