I very much enjoyed the walk along the Malecon. Sat on edge to listen to waves. Very relaxing place to go to.

The Malecon is a nice stroll from the Colonial Zone, There are major hotels and restaurants along the Malecon. There is an area along the Malecon where one can relax and enjoy the nice Dominican breeze.

Stayed at the Jaragua hotel right in front of the malecón and went to a restaurant on the malecón, nice boulevard to stroll, noticed that they are making renovations and it needs better lighting through the streets.

Beautiful road by the ocean but the building in the area looks ruins lots of trailers. Traffic very heavy most of the time. Don't walk alone the city it's dangerous
