  • But if it is true that Avenue is quite congested and there are some damaged traffic lights, it is worth make the journey through the edge coastal, as it is very clean and has stations to exercise or to rest. It would be nice to have food kiosks, since all the restaurants are on the other side, i.e., crossing the Avenue. The sector where starts the coastal belt from the Center if this a little careless, I saw enough dirt on the beach and stinks.
