If you go to Mazatlán...you must visit the malecón. The longest in Central and South America. Try the “pulmonias” special taxis... Nice place, nice people...

I really enjoyed walking along the malecon. Some sections were under construction but that was not a problem. Nice to see the sunsets from here.

La malecon is very long. I like best the part near the older part of town rather than the part with all the hotels.

Once completed, soon, this will be a game changer for Mazatlan. From 6 to 8 AM join the thousands walking, running, exercising, biking, boarding, or just sitting and watching the morning begin. If you happen to be staying in one of the many upgraded hotels...More

I stayed in the Old Town part of Mazatlan so the Malecon was right there. They are upgrading it with the installation of pavers along the sidewalks. A bit of a long walk with lots of picture taking. Several places to stop for photo taking....More

A great place to enjoy the ocean view and swim. Street vendors are nice and friendly and do not harangue the tourists. Lots of places to get great shrimp.
