El Malecón runs for 15 kilometers along the Caribbean shore. The middle stretch of this levee is reserved for casual strolling, family outings, lovers' trysts and simple sightseeing. Visitors enjoy the ice cream parlors and restaurants, plus the hot nightlife in several bars and discos. In fact, El Malecón might be described as an open-air disco in itself. In keeping with the party spirit of its businesses, Carnival and July's Merengue Festival are held here.
