it was beautiful, and breathtaking then have salmon sahimi at El Fish Market. I ran along the ocean with many other fitness buffs from Valentino's to El Fish Market. I actually ran further but, couldn't find the lighthouse. :( I didn't have the correct name: El fallo and no one could tell me where it was.

Early morning sunrise before it gets hot. Longest, widest, clean malecon in Mexico. Couples, families, singles swarm the boardwalk after sunset.

The malecon (seawall) was a good place to walk. You can find food venders selling from carts to hand carried trays. If food carts are not for you there are tons of restaurants and bars with table clothes and Waite staff. However try the food carts; bacon wrapped hotdogs to steaming hot corn in a cut to movie style popcorn.... More

We took a tour of Mazatlán and went from one end to the other of Mexico's longest malecón at 10km. It goes from the old part of the city all the way over to the Golden Zone. Along the way, there are statues, cliff divers, shops, and restaurants. A little bit of everything. We enjoyed our tour and the views.

My only grip was the fumes from the taxis. I think their exhaust on the vehicles have no codes. The weather may 2 through may 9 2015 was nice & breezy so that helped.

clean warm water, the lifeguards doesn't let you get in the ocean, the only places that you can go in are crowded. The beach is very clean, and the food they offer is delicious, you need to try the fried fish, amazing and very affordable with beer.

We really enjoyed strolling the Malecon. We walked pretty much the entire thing over our stay and loved the ocean views and smooth walkways, as well as the fountains and sculptures that were around it!

It's a long walk from one end to the other but luckily there are several place to stop either on the beach or across the street for either refreshments and/or some food. The very end at Old town is where the fishermen come in from their morning's fishing. You can buy fresh caught fish there. The other end is pretty... More
