Joggers, cyclists, and even parasailers frequent Miraflores’s cliffside boardwalk at all hours of the day. There are five miles of pristine green paths and cycle lanes, which go past parks such as the treasured Parque del Amor, filled with love poems and mosaics (it pays subtle tribute to Gaudí’s Güell Park in Barcelona). Dotted with cafés and restaurants, Malecón de Miraflores—which also goes by the names Malecón de la Reserva, Malecón Cisneros, and Malecón de la Marina, from south to north—is a hot spot come sunset for its picturesque view of the Pacific Ocean.
