The Malecon is a lovely 3-4 mile seawall/walkway along the sea in Mazatlan. We rented bicycles and rode along the length of the walk. There are lovely views of the city and many beachfront restaurants and vendors to enjoy.

Nothing like a loooong walk or drive on the beach. Amazing spot for pictures too! Perfectly safe and ideal for the whole family.

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
