The malecon is a good place to walk and do waterfront exercise. On weekends the locals go there to spend the afternoon and meet with their families and friends.

Really beautiful beaches but people have been throwing trash for years and the stuff not going out to sea has stuck to the land. Really bad if you try walking toward the beaches.

I was impressed with ongoing construction to add facilities along the malecon the runs into the old fortress . There was a new outdoor amphitheater and several new buildings with lots of green space for public strolling next to the shore.
