A boulevard and promenade on the beach with palm trees, the boulevard is one of the seven cultural treasures of Santo Domingo.

We walked through the coast to get to the Malecon and to our deception, it was all trash and trash smell, rotten smell. Then it was a little better but still very polluted...What a shame.

Not going to The Malecón in Cuba is like going to Disney and not seeing Mickey Mouse. This a historical place. Very relaxing and with a beautiful sight. Bring water for hydration and sunscreen to enjoy a long and safe walk.

Nice walk along the Santo Domingo Ocean Front. Only thing is there was a lot of garbage, plastic bottles along the beachfront washed up from the ocean.

Great walk along the coast line, restaurants and other attractions along the malecon. Traffic can be bad during rush hour, but you can stop off at several casinos that line the malecon.

It was recommended to me to visit the Malecón while I was staying in Santo Domingo. While the views were very pretty, you could see them from the car and I do not recommend walking around a lot. I was traveling by myself for work,...More
