Malecon

Otherwise knows by locals as the "Malecon" is an excellent place to run or walk early mornings or afternoons. Beautiful views of the Campeche Bay. Recommended

Worth to take a walk, ride a bike or just sit and see the sunset. It is refreshing. Huindreds of people excersising, and enjoying a very well planned urban park next to the sea.

A great place to come for a cool walk in the heat of the day or at sunset. This extends in both directions from the historical centre for quite a ways. Great views of the gulf and for people watching.

Optimal use of the promenade as a public space. Lots of people excersizing (jogging + biking + skating) and others just walking to enjoy the ocean view and the breeze. The restaurants are concentrated in the north side, but the distances are considerable from one end to the other. Loved the fishing boats and birds at sunset.

Walked back from stocking up at the excellent Walmart to the city centre via this promenade. It's beautifully kept, but the shoreline is unloved and smelly. Campeche is in a beautiful seaside location... pity they can't make more of it. Always nice to see pelicans, though.

It's a very popular plaxe to visit in this city, yo can walk, run or ride a bike in a safe place at any hour. In the evenings the sunset will give you a time for relaxation and introspection. Definitely a must when you come to Campeche.

An evening stroll along the 'malecon' was not as nice as expected. You have the continuous background noise of 4 lanes of traffic and the water is quite polluted with plenty of plastic bottles floating in it.

The "malecon" of the city Campeche is nice. To walk it takes about 1h. It is 5km, you can take great pictures over there. You will probably not miss this place if you will visit the old city.

Get some ice cream from the nearby ice cream shop and stroll down the malecon. Locals and tourists alike enjoying the ocean breeze.

It is very nice to walk this promenade. We did it every day, form our Hotel (Ocean View) to downtown. It has a great view over the ocean, and it is very clean and has several monuments. It also has a path for runners.
