Live Music- Salsa dancing. An energetic and bustling place right on the Malecon. They are known for their mojitos. The food is nice with a great ocean view- you can even see the fireworks at night. The menu is classic Cuban food at a very fair price. Make sure to ask for a sharpie to leave your mark!

Fresh baked bread, kombucha. It's a little grocery store so they have alllll kinds of different products- just walk 30 seconds and check it out.

Definitely a hot spot- you can hike or take a boat. Call ahead to make reservation- they are known to act Hollywood and not let people in without a reservation. If you do get to enjoy this place, you will probably dream about it for years to come. Just everything about it is a vibe. Great food and drinks too. I love this place to lounge all day. Very blue water beaches too
