El Malecón has a HUGE amount of places to dine but EL PEMA was our choice and we weren’t let down. They give you coconut water IN the coconut and later they cut it for you to eat the coconut fruit.

Not a lot of shade on the Malecon. I was there in the mornings, and it was hot! I preferred to venture into the city rather than spend time here, but it is good to see, especially the pier. Never saw it at night, we...More

Definitely worth a trip (we were staying in El Tunco) to stroll the Malecon, drink and eat (seafood was a lot cheaper there than in Tunco) and to see the fish market and boats coming in with their catch. Paid $5 each way by taxi....More

I went in December 2015. I hired a private taxi who took me around the area including the volcano in the capital. Then it was a quick drive to here on the coast. We went to the pier where you can see the fish market....More

It used to be "el muelle or el puerto ". We went for breakfast on Monday April 10, after 8am..... every single restaurant was closed. We did not know where to eat. Resort too expensive

The setting here is very nice. Right on the Pacific Ocean. Much hustle and bustle here. Street vendors, musicians. Very extensive menu, all of which is delicious.
