Malecon, Mazatlan
(4.4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We walked and enjoyed the sights along this 13 mile sea wall. If you are going to walk (or rent a bike from a local shop), best to do it early in the am or in the late afternoon during the hot season....  more »
  • The people, the sea, the sculptures. A walk down this marathon length Malecon is a delight day or night! 
  • Pneumonias are the carts that transported one to traverse the malecon, can do a great tour of the waterfront that is large enough
