“A nice place to sit down, watch the sea and feed the birds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

It was a quiet and nice time that I spent sitting on a bench, having a soft drink and enjoy the view.
The huge marlin statue is amazing.
If you are an outgoing person, you can make a good conversation with the locals or just enjoy some music if you carry a music player around.
It was a nice stop before going back home.

“A great place to sit back and soak up the life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is in the heart of downtown, there are bands playing all day and most of the evening, the navy base is right next door so you may see some unque ships close up, There is a beautiful walkway along the water where you can see locals fishing for dinner. there are alot of street vendors but all of them are polite and not pushy at all. get yourself a drink, grab a bench in the shade, and spend some time here just relaxing and absorbing mexican culture

“Easy place to people watch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Not much else to do. Nothing like Pier 39 in S.F. A few shops that sell tourist trinkets, a few dining establishments, the city hall. Not even much action in the harbor (i.e. boats) to look at. Save to walk down. Might be fun on an evening when events are planned (i.e. street faire).

See local monuments along the way. There "mangos on a stick" available. Great swimming on the bay, with Umbrellas, or surfing on the ocean side HUGE WAVES!
