A seaside roadway that protects Havana from the sea. A meeting ground for young people and families. Construction started in 1901 its the most impressive waterfront I have ever seen. Not only because it is 5 miles long but because it serves a greater purpose than just being a seawall or a boardwalk - it is a social scene.

The 8 lane highway has no cross walks or stoplights yet you will see people crossing it on a constant basis without fear of getting run over by cars. Cubans do no believe in painting cross walks on streets. Eitherway it would be pointless because a highway that long would need crosswalks every block since people sit all along it.
