  • The Malecón del Salado does not ask you please to similar sites in other cities. You can walk from Rodolfo Baquerizo Plaza (with paid and secure parking). On the hike you will encounter addressing with a varied offer of sites for simple meals and varied public shows. In the sector of La Bota a varied micro there are theatres, stand-up comedy, and musical shows. Worth a go at night and watch the spectacle of lights at the source on the Estero Salado.
