New pier is such an improvement over the old original one.... Lighting is spectacular when it is all working.... they need to maintain the lighting more. Beautiful views from the pier day and night.

A very, safe interesting area. Many artist, tourist and locals intermingling with a fantastic view of the bay. Nighttime has the area hopping.

Go early evening when seafood is being brought onto the beach -watch out for the pelicans! Street entertainers, artists, beach sellers, all there as well as bars and shops

Outstanding vibrant city that never sleeps. Malecon and Zona Romantica are safe and enjoyable. Definitely worth the trip especially if you get a direct flight. Warm friendly people and humid climate. Definitely take the Pirate ship evening tour for adults. Super fun!
