Malecon, Santo Domingo
(2.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a disappointment State when this ride is. Being the first sight they have customers of luxury hotels that are located in this area. Apart from the intense traffic that there may be in this area at certain times is to take into account the dirt and garbage present in the lawn can be seen and also by all the seashore. Waste, and bottles everywhere. Perhaps in the future you can fix and leave a nice walk.

  • room nice, that could be better... There is trash... much disorder and lack policing, if they fix it in these aspects would be great, to walk
