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 .

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. Here you can find everything from ritzy beach resorts to affordable youth hostels. Head slightly farther north along the city's famous promenade for a range of high-end options in the neighborhoods of El Dorado and El Cid, with the latter offering proximity to the city's bustling marina.
