So much fun

A fabulous long walk with a lot of local culture, good food, shopping and watching the cliff divers. Stop and speak with the locals, they're lovely!

We were dropped off at the southern most spot and walked almost to the end. It was great because we walked by Fisherman's beach where all the locals hang out....food carts galore. Fun to try the food. Then you end where all the beach bars are after a great morning of exercise. Wear comfortable shoes!!!

The Malecon's coastline makes for a great drive. I highly recommend stopping to see the divers. Stunning!

The malecon stretches from valentinos to the light house probably about 20km long. It is right along side the sea wall and is nicely paved or bricked smooth enough for roller blading or a Segway.. there is usually vendors selling drinks and food along the way. There is lots to see on the walk like statues and water fountains you... More

Walking the malecon made a pleasant afternoon. There were many interesting shops, and small boutique stores. Walking along the water side was calming and serene. There were several interesting statues , an actual concrete swimming pool fed from the ocean with a water slide , and majestic views of the ocean and islands. At the south end there is a... More

This malecon is very long (8 km), with regularly placed statues and access points to the beach. Not as fancy as in Puerto Vallarta, but great for long walks and sight seeing.

This is a very interesting place and a must see in Mazatlán. The best way to visit is by bus, unless you are very close by. The shop vendors are friendly and you can shop, eat, drink and just walk around and soak up the sites. This is next to the bay AND A VERY NICE BEACH.

Great way to get some exercise and enjoy the ocean as you walk. Plenty of places to stop along the way and have a cool drink and a bite to eat.

It may be tempting to stay in your lovely resort, but in my opinion you haven't been to Mazatlan unless you've walked the Malecon. We do it every time we come. Take a bus (cheap) and get off anywhere and walk the rest of the way into the city. There's always artists working, and fabulous people watching. Admire the sculptures,... More

You can spend many hours walking on this Beach sidewalk, many places to eat and share a cold one! And here we go again needing 100 letters to make a review!
