The Malecon at night

The Malecon in Havana is a road and sea wall running from Old Havana out to the suburbs of Vedado and Miramar. It’s where men go to fish, lovers to enjoy some time together, groups to drink and party, and families to hang out and enjoy the waves coming in off the Straits of Florida. Or, in the case of some young men, it’s a place to offer a naive tourist a “special price” on cigars of questionable origin.
