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.

The North end by Valentina has been revamped and it is very nice, smooth and there are areas now with benches and free wifi. About 1.5 km south, on the Malecon, I watched workers planting 20ft tall palm trees. Further south from this is a...More

Skip the parasailing and deep sea fishing and walk this immense boardwalk for its entire 21 km length. So much to see and do along the way. Cliff divers, statues, Mexican history explained, photo ops, bird feeding, surfing and swimming make the walk a brilliant...More

The malecon has just completed a facelift and is a beautiful place to spend time at. Lovely lights line the full length - around 23 kms from one end to the other. It is safe to walk day and evening, with lots of activity.

Great walk with great views. Newly redone adding trees, shrubs, bike paths and free wifi and eliminating parking at the curbs.

The Malecon is always an adventure. There are so many little shops and hole in the wall places to eat and enjoy a cold beverage, not to mention the views.

To be fair there were construction works happening up and down the Malecon in anticipation of an event coming up. But still there were very few people around using it and basically it's just a concrete path.
