El Malecon, the seven kilometer oceanside pedestrian walkway, can definitely be seen as the heart of La Habana. It is a place where minutes easily melt into hours, a place where you can leave all of your worries behind as you watch life pass you by, a place where the Caribbean saltwater air kisses your lips and intoxicates you. No trip to La Habana is complete without at least one visit to it.
As we strolled down the walkway we saw all types of scenes — we saw men fishing, children swimming, lovers embracing — all while the waves of the ocean broke furiously against the wall.
Once we made our way to the end, we all agreed that we were exhausted from the intense Cuban heat, thus we decided to retire early for the day in order to save up some energy for the adventures that awaited us. It was time to leave La Habana and see more of Cuba!
