  • Stroll along the malecon is a pleasant experience on a tour of a few blocks. There are enough gastronomic offer and places of rumba and a street with some handicrafts, many of them not so cheap. Street vendors are not intense as in other places. The place does not leave one with an open mouth, but is OK for an afternoon of leisure. Unfortunately, we went during the June in which Queen not consistently good weather. Moreover, made in our first cold muuuuuucho late (we use coats to walk the malecon), although people seemed to enjoy the beach more than the sea. Much better and more great are the embankments of other Latin cities American as the Valparaíso and Viña del mar in Chile, Rio de Janeiro and Copacabana in Brazil as well as Balboa Avenue in Panama, Central America to give some examples. This in particular in small and simple. For us it is not a place to visit in the future.
