I enjoyed spending a few hours here. Walked along waterfront, had a beer at a bar. Lots of families, children swimming although I personally wouldn’t trust the water. Serene atmosphere with nice views. Not much shade so bring a hat.

Most days their are vendors andr entertainers. It is a great mix of locals and expats and a nice way to spend time outside. Very safe during the day. Probably would avoid after dark.

Nice view of the lake and if you feel like walking, easier on your feet than the cobblestone streets in town. Sometimes there are local dancers or other performers.

Has one very busy area with playground and picnic tables, walk further and it is all quiet and lovely gardens and sculptures. A few vendors and shops along the way. Lots of families in the one area.

I was impressed with this tiny malecon; it is NOT large and the narrow streets make driving an american style SUV pretty tough. However, I did like the color, the nature and it was fun hearing so much English being spoken.

There are many restaurants within walking distance of where you’re staying and all are very good. My favourite is Cocinart by far! Tango is also very good with a large menu. You are in restaurant heaven so enjoy!
