Malecon, Santo Domingo

(600+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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. See Malecon and all Santo Domingo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Santo Domingo family vacation planner.
