The Malecon offers visitors an easy access to a beautiful sandy beach for a relaxing day. Pick up some beverages and snacks and enjoy time without being hassled.

Mazatlan's Malecon is the best in Mexico. Starting in the Golden Zone it extends 5 km south along the ocean. Great place for walking, jogging, rollerblading, biking all of which are permitted.

Beautiful weather in May this year. Not to hot and not muggy like it usually is. Great scenic views. Great food (Looney Beans, Allegro, Angelica's, Aca Los Charros and Pura Vida) options.

Can you walk to the Malecon from the cruise ships?

No, you cannot walk from the cruise ships. We stopped on a tour that included the Malecon booked onboard the ship.
This is probably a strange request but I was wondering what the walking distance (miles) is from the El Cid Castilla Hotel to the Malecon area by the Valentino Restaurant/Night Club.

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.
