We walked during the day. Lots of shops and restaurants. I wished we would have gone back in the evening, I heard that a show on Malecon was pretty awesome.

This is a nice boardwalk especially at night. This boardwalk comes alive at night. There are street entertainers all times of the day. I would recommend a nice and easy stroll here at anytime and it is very safe.

Don't know the distances, suggest using google maps. I also would strongly encourage you to use Uber instead of taxis as they price is pre-determined. If you do use a taxi, ask the price beforehand. In any event, you will... More
