A pleasant run featuring astonishing sunsets and authentic Cuba.

The entire Malecón is five miles which gives you the opportunity to make it a loop of ten. From people watching to historic monuments the Malecón provides a great track for seeing Cuban culture while getting in exercise.

Starting at the National Hotel of Cuba you'll walk down behind the hotel out onto the Malecón. Keep in mind that you'll want to do this run in the early evening or early morning as the heat can easily jump to over 100 with humidity during the day!

Stay for the sunset to catch some incredible photographs and watch as the area turns from tourists to an authentic local hang out!
