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 .

  • Yummy food - octopus and shrimp and beer on the Malecon. Beautiful view and a passing musician added to the great meal.  more »
  • My hotel was right on the main street but further from the boardwalk itself. It was about a 10 minute walk but I could have walked that whole street day and night every day.  more »
