    Favorite thing: Built along the Northern coastline of Havana, during the early 1900's EL MALECON is a favourite walk for the locals and tourist alike. It runs along the main arteries of Havana and provides incredible views of the Bay. The famous 12 kilometre oceanside road links Old Havana to the busy neighbourhood of Vedado,
    We could see children playing, locals fishing, and folks just enjoying the afternoon of bright sunshine.

    Favorite thing: U must spend some time in the malecon, where all the people use to go at last once to look the sunset.
    U'll met there lot of different cuban people, with all our folklore and tastes. And you can't miss our beatifull beaches!!

    Fondest memory: The beatifull view from the 'Cristo' located in the bay. It has a wonderfull view of the city and is a good place to rest while U're walking through the old havana.

    Favorite thing: THE MALECON
    This world famous seaside avenue is the soul of Havana. Take a walk up or down, meet the people that fish or swim there, admire the old 50's cars or the ruined old houses. To find it, ask anyone in the street: if he doesn't know where it is, he's definetly a tourist ;-))

    Favorite thing: When you come to Havana you must walk along Malecón St. Here you can meet all kinds of people, either by day or night. It is the place where we all end the day.I'm inviting U to come to the trablelogues and see what is coming about this dearest friend of us!!!!

    Fondest memory: One of the things I´ve enjoyed the most is diving and swimming at Malecón seawall.Nowadays it is almost imposible becouse of the polution.But I hope some day (Lennon)...and I won't be the onlyone!!
