Wow! What a great long walk along the ocean! If it's windy it takes a bit away from the experience,but we were lucky that our weather was perfect,so we joined with other travelers and local families enjoying the Malecon,the sandy beaches,and the local vendors I would recommend a walk in a calm evening,so nice!

We walked it! Weather was perfect not to hot. Pretty boring though, not a lot to stop and look at, no shopping per se. We were able to look at all the large paper mache art installations for Carnival. Very cool! Of course the view of the ocean was awesome. We did end up going back riding in a Pulmonia!

It is a nice walk along the ocean. You see the different monuments that are part of Mazatlan's history. You can experience the fish market where the fishermen sell their catch. You can stop at different boutiques and restaurants. It has areas to rest.

This is a beautiful part of Mazatlan. While it is very congested during major Maz Holidays, It is a quiet tranquil place to walk and enjoy sunsets in the Fall. The most beautiful sunsets can be seen from this location around 515-530pm. It may still be hot so wear a hat or covering and your glasses, but get there well... More

Get your exercise so you can enjoy the food and the tequila/beer. Don't miss the sculpture tour to learn about all the beautiful art along the Malecon. The place to meet and greet everyone!

Beautiful Malecon with amazing view leading into Old Mazatlan. Many shops and restaurants along the way. Love those statues and many seating areas to rest. Beaches have many tourists in this beautiful Bay overlooking Pacific Ocean.

The Malecon in Mazatlan is basically just a very wide sidewalk along the main road following the ocean...nothing real spectacular, doesn't come close in comparison to the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta. The locals promote it as one of the longest malecons in the world, but big deal, it really doesn't offer much.

I imagine the malecon was gorgeous in its heyday and it's still nice but unfortunately it's right next to a very busy road and all you hear are cars/buses and smell/see their exhaust. It's sad they didn't have better urban planning to keep this area more pristine. We drove by several times and walked a Friday night. It was nicer... More
