Malecon, Mazatlan

4.4
#1 of 119 in Things to do in Mazatlan
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.

    I'll put him five points to the waterfront that offers a unique natural spectacle, I came across a turtle nesting and police protected it as arrived the Aquarium staff, once term turtle eggs were incubated and she returned safely to the sea, another day blanket had stripes, very cute and comfortable enjoying to the edge of the beach. The Boardwalk seemed to me very quiet and safe day and night.

    You need, you must visit the Malecón if you visit Mazatlan. What a great view, nice place to walk, I think it's almost 20 KM. They're making some works at some parts of the malecon, but doesn't matter...  more »

Where to stay in Mazatlan

Mazatlan's accommodations cluster around the old town, making the most of the city's trademark blend of French Baroque architecture and sea views.
