Malecon was ok, it was under a lot of construction during our trip. Puerto Vallarta malecon is super nice and convenient compared to Mazatlan. We had Mariscos on the beach, it was so delicious. But not much to do with all the construction on the...More

The Malecon is a terrific place to see Mexicano families enjoying the city. I would encourage a walk along the Malecón any evening as the sun goes down.

What fabulous local color! Street venders, live music, art work, creative local retail, all immediately on the playa! All fresh with the sea breezes, and the sounds of the surf. A "MUST" visit for the Mazatlán local Flavor!

This is such an amazing long, beach-front walkway. It is nice to just explore and see all the views.

Although it is one of the longest malecones of Mexico, it seems to be in permanent state of reparation. So one need to be searching for a pulmonía (taxi) all the time.

We took a taxi to the cliff diver area and walked back to the Golden Zone. Was a great walk with great views. Make sure you apply sunscreen a bit more generously on the side that will be facing the sun as we both burned...More

No, you cannot walk from the cruise ships. We stopped on a tour that included the Malecon booked onboard the ship.

qiute short, I would say about 7-8 blocks from EL Cid Granada, go in the morning, the breeze is nice, and stop at the Panama for a treat and coffee.
