  • This is a very nice hidden gem located near the university. The river walk is nice, needs a little upkeep but other than that, it has nice shaded areas to walk, even in the heat of the day. It feels safe and overall is clean. They’re plenty of resting areas and trash cans everywhere (although full sometimes). I’ll definitely recommend this cool walking area on the other side of the 9 de Octubre (the very other side from the malecon 2000. They’re also (paid&guarded) parking foreseen.
  • Great for walking and taking pictures
