The walk is long and hot but it's worth it, the views are spectacular and the sculptures are very pretty.

Nice sculptures. We didn't actually walk it and were told Ocean Grill is the only really good restaurant there. Pretty view of the ocean

Walked about half of this with my wife during sunset on our 25th wedding anniversary before catching a Pulmonia to our favorite restaurant in Mazatlan.

The Malecon is a perfect place for a leisurely stroll, or to listen to music, or ride your bicycle and has several accesses to the beach and beach front restaurants!

Nice place to walk.........however no shaded area's so bring a hat and water. Still better than shovelling snow! No tourist traps or vendors on the day we were there. Very long so could be used for long power walks if you like the sun and heat.

Early morning walks and incredible sunsets. Always there is a cool breeze coming off the water, even in hot summertime

The Malacon is the sidewalk that runs completely around the bay. In recent years Mazatlan has upgraded it to improve the looks and added benches along the way. I have walked the Malacon from the Golden Zone to the Shrimp Bucket. You can see true Mazatlan just by walking along the Malacon.

Out of the handful of malecons we have visited in Mexico, this is the best. You always seem to be in the thick of things. From the palapa restaurants to the kitsch shops, the casinos to the resorts, and from the discos to the drinking dens. It goes on for at least 4 miles. One can walk without having to... More

The malecon is very long, and it's possible to walk on it for hours, enjoying the beach on one side and the city on the other. Mornings are best, as the afternoons are hot, but if you're looking for exercise opportunities, this is it!
