Great for a long walk with a good view! We didn't walk it all (it was around 12 and it was too sunny) we'll try again to catch the sunset!

Most shopping can be done around the dairy queen. If you travel downtown be prepared to navigate the narrow sidewalks people and vendors.

The Malecon is a walkway along the short near the historic city center of Mazatlan. There isn't a great deal to do along the Malecon but it is a great place to take a morning or mid-day stroll. Some highlights along the Malecon are as follows. -Fishermans port. This is where some small fishermen pull their boats up on the... More

As I wrote, the malecon was great for jogging or a morning walk. The downside is some of the shops on the other side of the street seemed seedy. Nice ocean views.

We took a drive in one of the golf cart style taxis. It was almost sunset and the Malecon is the boardwalk along the ocean. There are lots of vendors to buy trinkets, restaurants right on the ocean for meals or just drinks and beers. Cliff divers jumping in to the ocean. It is safe and fun

Mazatlan has done a tremendous job with the roughly 21 km Malecon boardwalk (actually concrete). Every part of it is interesting. All of it is next to the water and it is very pleasant to watch the waves come in on the mix of sandy beaches and ro0cky points. There are restaurants, etc., at many places as well as facilities...
