Construction has been proceeding slowly down the Malecon, the seaside of the street has been torn up almost to the statues halfway, while the opposite side has been demolished up to the Sweet Spot restaurant. Cement has started to be poured at the south end, by the Costa Azul hotel and the beginnings of the design can be seen. Green water pipes are waiting on trailers for the workers to lay them underground, mesh and metal outlines for the sidewalk designs are being laid on the awaiting ground, and the backhoe is steadily moving dirt around.
Of course the Malecon is still completely accessible, and stores are open and waiting for you to drop in for a visit. Drive or walk carefully of course, and go down for a look to see how things are progressing. Maybe even stop for a taco or two and support your local businesses! Have a great weekend everybody!
