I want to run the beach’s length, because it never ends.
Ecuador recently reinvented the Puerto López malecon (beach front boardwalk). From beginning to end, construction covered a two year period. The 2.4 km malecon is completely upgraded and unrecognizable from it's former self.

A deteriorating road, crumbling sidewalk, and no public restrooms. That was the old malecon.

Experts in several engineering specialties and heavy equipment were brought in from around the country.
Everything was labor intensive. Much of the cement was mixed manually and hauled by wheelbarrow.
Each bridge had it's own team of engineers and workers. The amount of rebar used on each bridge was impressive.
