I viewed the malecón but couldn't use it as the areas in which I wanted to travel between were under massive construction. Amazing concept and will be beautiful once construction is complete

Both are good choices. Both are beaches. The Malecon is lined with restaurants and great for walking. Brujas is further from the port and more secluded with a beautiful beach. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Enjoy!

No, you cannot walk from the cruise ships. We stopped on a tour that included the Malecon booked onboard the ship.
