The best walk in Mazatlan.

Great way to get some exercise and enjoy the ocean as you walk. Plenty of places to stop along the way and have a cool drink and a bite to eat.

It may be tempting to stay in your lovely resort, but in my opinion you haven't been to Mazatlan unless you've walked the Malecon. We do it every time we come.

You can spend many hours walking on this Beach sidewalk, many places to eat and share a cold one! And here we go again needing 100 letters to make a review!

I was last in Mazatlan when I was a teenager - many years ago. I fell in love with this revitalized Mazatlan. The Malecon was a delight. Impressive views while driving, walking or viewing from your room window.

It's nice to walk or bike along the malecón which stretches for more than a few miles from Olas Altas to Valentinos.

The Malecon in Mazatlan teems with activity, any hour of day or evening. Many people (locals and gringos) are walking, jogging roller blading, cycling or just hanging out, people watching.
