Malecon, Santo Domingo

2.4
Take a stroll by the ocean along Malecon, the capital's famous promenade. See historic sites, such as remnants of the old city walls and a 17th-century fort, snapping photos of the old buildings against the sparkling blue backdrop as you go. Now an entertainment and commercial center, the waterfront strip boasts some of the capital's leading restaurants and live music venues. Unfortunately, it also represents something of a missed opportunity for the city, with too many areas used as rubbish dumps, and relentless traffic during the week. Malecon is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Santo Domingo Edition.

  • The Malecon of Santo Domingo!, inspiring songs of beautiful sunsets, faithful reflection of the city, displayed impressive sea. Recently remodeled even found jobs in the area, but it is an excellent place to go for a walk or just walk to see the evening. Some vendors may bother a bit but nothing to not visit it. At both ends of the malecón you can find some attractions and even some restaurants.
