Chapala Malecon, Chapala

4.2
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. Put Chapala Malecon at the forefront of your travel plans using our Chapala online day trip planner .

  • I totally enjoyed this boardwalk, you can see local vendors, nice restaurants, great wiew, people playing music, dancing. Forced stop.  more »
  • Very nice waterfront for walking, with many food options, but always recommend season low, quieter and cheaper.

  • Nice place to go as the malecon is the Chapala's preeminent meeting place to eat a rich snow carafe, charales or enter to eat at one of several restaurants that there are seafood and some Mexican food with live music
