“El Malecon, officially Avenida de Maceo, is a promenade, roadway and seawall, which stretches for 8km along the coast of Havana. It runs from the mount of Havana Harbour in Old Havana, along the north side of Habana Centro neighbourhood, ending in the Vedado neighbourhood.”
We walked along the Malecon almost every day we were in Havana. The temperature and wind were a bit cool then, especially in the shade, but the views were beautiful and the people fascinating to watch. It goes without saying that we love being close to the ocean so this was an essential part of our days in Cuba.
We didn’t experience it ourselves while we were there but, apparently at night the locals go out to the Malecon to dance to live music under the street lights. We want to return to Cuba soon, before there are too many more changes and our Spanish is (a LOT) better, and then we will explore more of the coast and do a little more dancing 😉
