Malecon, Mazatlan

4.4
#1 of 73 in Sightseeing in Pacific Coast
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take a stroll along the 7 km (4.9 mile) Malecon, a water front esplanade that showcases the city's culture. Observe the day-to-day life of the locals, vintage American cars, and well-weathered hotels. Couples visit the seawall to take a romantic walk, and artists and philosophers can appreciate the area as well; people-watch is a prime activity. Be sure to bring plenty of water if you're wandering in the heat of the day; once the day winds down, consider grabbing a beer and finding a good spot to sit and watch the sunset. Malecon is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Mazatlan Edition.
