Stroll along Chapala Malecon for a cultural and lively atmosphere accompanied by picturesque lakeside views. Manicured gardens, palm trees, fountains, and various artistic monuments line the pathway. Small colorful boats fill the harbor while fishermen sit on the piers' edge. Watch for local vendors selling candy, dried fruit, and handcrafted items. You can grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants, which typically involves some freshly caught fish and a free local beverage of tequila or wine. The promenade is especially pretty as the sun sets over the distant mountain skyline.

  • The Malecón is always a very pleasant walk to do it alone, as a couple, with friends or with the family. There are established stalls selling clothes, crafts, food, drinks, toys, sandals and footwear. Also a variety of restaurants. Musicians and peddlers of snow, toys, balloons, kites, snacks, flowers, charales, and many other things. In addition, boats that offer trips around the Lake. It is an excellent choice to discover the atmosphere of the city, surrounded by families and with a lovely view of the Lake.

  • During the day it's relaxing because there are almost no people and the restaurants are very lonely, but at night is another thing is to go out and have fun.

  • A beautiful calm place for all members of the family. The lake is really quiet and the landscapes astonishing
  • One of my favorite places to go to. I love watching the hot girls pass by as they exercise. Also, the view is amazing. The only down side is the "banda" musicians, making terrible noise here and there...
  • Beautiful. Must see while visiting Jalisco. It's just two hours away from Guadalajara.
  • Good place for a walk.
  • Nice lake but its been slowly loosing water due to droughts.
