“Relaxation total”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

What can I say but amazing views of old cars and cuban life at every level. I enjoyed many sunsets there just relaxing after my long walks in Habana. I think there is a space for everyone to sit and relax.

“Splashy fun”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

It's just how I imagined, altough you have to watch out that you don't get soaked whilst walking along. In the evenings all the young Cubans hang out there. Good views at sunset.

“An obvious stop”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Can't go to Havana and not feel the sea breeze on the Malecon. Go in the daytime, and also at night, for the full experience.

“cafe neruda”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Nice to see that improvements are beginning to the Malecon waterfront but if you go to the Cafe Neruda be prepared for good food but a wait of an hour for it. And take care to avoid the sewage on the Malecon

“Relaxing place and great view from Havana”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

if you want to get closer to the real locals in Havana you must go to El Malecon, this walk side with a large sitting area offers to everyone culture, music, peace and more... avoid sitting in dark areas and very late at night
