I stayed at a hotel right on Avenida George Washington. Best decision. The street is lively and safe. There are restaurants, fun places to go, parks, cool street artwork, magnificent sea views, and friendly people along the entire street.

The avenue is very safe. You can see the ocean and local people in this area. We took a lot of pictures there and had one dinner.

This avenue offers great views of the gorgeous beautiful and baby blue ocean and of course of the city. I highly recommend a walk on the avenue to enjoy the palm trees and the ocean.
