Wonderful place to walk on a hot day. Gentle breeze off the water relieves the heat and humidity. Wear lots of sunscreen. Sun is deceiving. Stop for a beer (or food) along the way at any of the beachside huts/restaurants. If you walk from Valentino's south, you pass the fisherman's monument and can actually go as far as to watch...

We absolutely love the malecon. We walk this beautiful boardwalk everyday when we are in Mazatlan. Beautiful beach and ocean views. Get at taste of local culture with monuments and restaurants, local fisherman. It's a must when visiting.

The Malecon is a long paved Oceanside walk. Over 7 miles long; a great place for a stroll or some serious power walking or jogging. People watching, and stopping at one of the many shops and restaurants can fill a whole day. If you get tired; you can always take a cheap bus , or a local "palmonia" ( open... More

I mean, why wouldn't you? Stroll here, I mean. Unless you were on a bike, great for that too. Beautiful views, and the seafood shacks along the way cook up the best food in town.

Just an unusually, interesting drive. Grab a Pulmonia and ride from Historic Mazalan to the Golden Zone (get a fixed price before jumping aboard).

11 mile curved concert walk, with historical brass monuments. Public Beach on one side, plenty of restaurants on the other. Interesting and a must in Mazatlan.

Beautifull place, with a lot of options for eat, drink and do. is the largest malecon in Latin America, you can walk around in day or night, good for couples, family or friends.

Kind of nice as found just by chance. Some nice acts and good people watching. Not all that close to some of the resorts and would not make a special trip to see. Just nice to be on a beach/ocean. Had a fish/not nice spell at times.
