It's funny this place is called a boardwalk - there are no boards! But "Malecon" means "esplanade along a waterfront" in Spanish, and that describes this place very well. Always alive and bustling, it's said this seaside stroll alone is enough to fully immerse you in the city's vibe. A series of startling bronze statues and elegant palm trees mark the 800 metre pedestrian walk. Interspersed in between are shops, bars, night-clubs, art galleries boutiques, and restaurants. Artists and performers all set up their own spaces. Beachside eateries serve up cheap treats - margaritas and fried shrimps. Hawkers sell all manner of junk. At night, the boardwalk is the heart of the city's nightlife, usually after 10 or 11pm. Cobblestone streets leading away from the boardwalk ascend into the city's historic district. And at sunrise and sunset, there is no better place in the city to be.
