Fodor's Review

This pleasant waterfront walk between Brasil and Pevas is a good place for an evening stroll. During high-water season, the Itaya River reaches the cement, but during the dry months (May-November), it recedes into the distance. You'll find some lovely rubber-boom-era architecture here, and there are a few bars and restaurants on the Malecón's northern end, near the Plaza de Armas. Its southern end gets less traffic, and muggings have been reported there at night, so stick to the three northernmost blocks after 6 pm.
