So many restaurants,bars and shops right on this block alone. You can go form one end to the other and have eaten tacos, gotten free shots from the tequila vendors, bought some souveniers and looked at some paintings just on that strip alone

If you walk Olas Altas after 9pm you cannot but touch shoulders with many, many visitors. This place comes alive in the evening and bands and music cover the whole 6 block long street

Walking along olas Alta's you will find everything you need. From restaurants, farmacias, liquor stores, jewelry stores there is something for everyone. Many people go to see Freddy for their ailments. Tell him what is wrong and he can give you the proper treatment. Jeff

Try some stores that serve the local community as opposed to tourists. For example, Woolworths is walking distance from the north end of the Malecon.
