There are nice places to hang around...the malecon gets populated by artists and other commerce. Find a nice place to eat and see the people hanging around

A small stretch across from a slew of restaurants and bars. Great view. Very charming to walk and talk with a significant other or just sit for a moment and enjoy the view. Not the most extravagant of "boardwalk" but still very nice.

The Malecon is a small strip in Esperanza with a number of restaurants, bars and shops. At night all the places have different lights and with the music from the different establishments (and some of the driving cars!) it takes on a real festive atmosphere....More
