About us



MALECÓN was established in 2002 and has since then grown as a leading provider of events, dance classes / shows, language courses and travel.

The Cuban singer and musician Isaac Delgado wrote this in a song about the seaside esplanade MALECÓN in Havana. Delgado himself named one of his records is titled “MALECÓN”. It is evident that Delgado carries with him the memory of MALECÓN now that he lives abroad. Seaside esplanades can be found in all costal cities. The Cubans go to MALECÓN at night in order to breathe in the fresh sea air, or to fish and maybe catch a “Dorado”.
