We loved walking along the malecón. Beautiful egrets and pelicans, happy families, lively children, and vibrant art. A “must do”. We visited for a week, and walked it daily.

We once again enjoyed walking the Ajijic malecon on a Sunday afternoon. It was very beautiful and tranquil. Way less busy than the Chapala malecon.

We walked along the malecon for a bit before dinner last week. It's not the best malekan I've ever been to, but it's certainly adequate. At least there were no Hawkers like on many of the other strolls we've taken in Mexico!

A wide promenade built to overlook Lake Chapala. Many people can stroll and have their own space. Children can play, picnics too. We were pleasatly surprised with the birdlife. Of course, the pelicans steal the show. They are so graceful and big! Vendors are about,...More

This is a great place to go for a walk any time of the day. The view is amazing. The surface is flat (important because most of the sidewalks are uneven so one must be careful). I enjoy spending time here sitting on the benches...More

Great for a walk along the Lake, as there are few places in Ajijic where you can do this. Best to go to see the sunset or early morning sunrise. Probably want to avoid the weekends as they are filled with locals and Tapatios from...More

Beautiful stroll along the lake. One of the few places to walk without tripping on the cobblestones. If you start on the western end you will be rewarded with places to eat and drink when you get to the end. It was nice to see...More

You know what they say . . . go where the locals go. One of those great places is Gossip's Kitchen on the main highway through AJijic. Owner and chef hails from New Orleans and brings that style to a lot of dishes. Crabcakes... More
