This is a cool place especially if youre a balikbayan for friends and family reunion because of the lively atmosphere and the zamboangueno feeling .There's live music at night and what's super nice is the dancing fountain that would really light up the attraction and it would go with the tune of zamboanga music which I find really entertaining . They would also include recent hits which is cool as well.If you visit zamboanga dont ever miss this and have dinner at ALAVAR seafood I love their dishes and its affordable. Entrance is free so all you have to spend for is food and 10 pesos I think if u wanna be upclose to the dancing fountain. The view of the bay is still relaxing as ever. The only thing that annoys me a little bit is because its a free attraction you would see a lot of people as in A LOT of people and students at night and as always in every crowded area you have to watch out your belongings .

We had our dinner in Paseo del Mar during our visit to Zamboanga. We ate at a "kambingan" restaurant. The food was great. And while eating, there were so many entertainment. There were performing Muslims on the stage, and the dancing Fountain nearby.

There were so many chooses of food, you just have to check the place.

The first thing I noticed was the similarity of the lamp posts to the ones lining the Manila Bay walk. We went there on a week day but was surprised to find many people enjoying their bar chows and music. There was even an Alavar restaurant. Some people were sitting on the seawalls feeling the sea breeze.Security was strict at the gate and this gave us a confident feeling of being safe inside the area. I enjoyed the musical fountain which you can watch free of charge. There were a number of scheduled show for the night so you wouldn't miss it.

Paseo del Mar locates itself, literally beside the sea, and it is actually a nice place to hang out with friends, family, and couples. Restaurants abound in this area, and many would just be there to relax and enjoy the night. This place is also filled with music where one could dance their way and enjoy their evening. Do not forget to try the Knickerboxers, a type of dessert of fruits and ice cream which I find surprisingly delightful and unique to Zamboanga.

Do not forget to witness the fountain show where there is a combination of water, light and fire exhibit all to the tune of some music.

Since this is a wholesome place for everyone, hard drinks are not normally available here, but there are bars outside where one can indulge in.
