Trip Planner:   Mexico  /  Pacific Coast  /  Sinaloa  /  Mazatlan  /  Malecon

Malecon, Mazatlan

4.3
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Malecon and other Mazatlan attractions using our handy Mazatlan holiday maker app .

  • I liked it so much, you don't expect something like Cancun, but if they are better than Acapulco, renovating many apparently want to be an option rather than Acapulco or other, it is pretty cool that young you will play music much enliven the occasion.
