People were fun and very nice. Never felt like we were in danger. Place was very clean. Great for shopping entertainment, cocktails, and dining.

“Busy and Beautiful”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Depending on the time of year this area can be pretty busy, but a lot of the people are wondering around the downtown market instead of on the beach. Stroll down the boardwalk, get some pictures with the statues and the crazy cool sand castles that people build. It's very beautiful! When you're done there head over to Senor Frog's for a "yard" of your favorite cocktail and walk through the market. It'll make for a full day of being out so take whatever you'll need to get through the day and have a good time!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Very beautiful walk along the beach. A lot of vendors and if you're really interested in buying they'll barter with you and if you're not interested all you have to say is "no gracias" and they are very gracious and will walk away.

“lovely enhancements”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

they've eliminated the cobblestone road that we needed to cross...widened the "boardwalk" (cement), filled in with plantings, much more comfortable for a stroll....we like to wander down to "Old Town" along the water using this Malecon....many nice restaurants to choose from all along the way. The upper Malecon has some of the more familiar locations and "faster" food...Old Town has better restaurants
