Puerto Rico

Malecón de Cataño

This is a lovely coastal run in Cataño at the south end of San Juan Bay. A fun diversion from San Juan as it’s reachable by ferry. A wonderful multi-use path runs directly along the waterfront, consisting of a combination of springy boardwalk and asphalt surface. Runners can enjoy great views of the San Juan skyline across the bay, and exercise equipment, water, and restrooms are available along the way. The walkway itself is about 1 mile long, but a sidewalk extends west along Ocean Drive and east to the ferry terminals for runners who want to tack on a little extra distance.

The eastern end of our route in La Puntilla can be reached via ferry from San Juan.
