Get out of your cab and stroll along the Malecon here! So beautiful and quite pleasant sea breezes. Check out the sites, including the cliff divers...just beware, street vendors are all around!

It's where life is happening at almost all hours, even at 4 am, when a few folks were heading for work. It is noisy at night, but it is a microcosm of life in Mazatlan. Enjoyed it a lot.

Food, music, people-watching, pole-climbing traditional Indians who "fly" down from about 30 feet to the flute-playing melodies of a guy on top - local musicians (families with small children) wonderful sculptures, salsa dancing at El Bodeguita and Oceano - rock n roll at Murphy's and others - great place for a sunset - or later, to see the fireworks shooting...

A great way to end the day, walking along the Malecon. Totally safe and a great atmosphere. A true treasure in Mazatlan.

Don't miss this spectacular zone of Mazatlan. People is everywhere and the police is very close to protect citizens. More recommendable for friends than for families at night. Enjoy beer and others

Busy street but very pleasant sidewalk on the shoreline. Makes for an enjoyable hike down to the Olas Altas.

Mazatlan's malecon has seen better days. It sits upon a beautiful stretch of beach between downtown and the Zona Dorada, and is great for walking, running, biking and offers beautiful views. There are some older hotels and restaurants across the street, but also many vacant lots which detract from the ambiance.

it is where you can exercise (roller blade, cycle, walk, run), just go for a walk and be with other tourists but more importantly be with the Mexican people, or relax on the very long beach. Fantastic area...
