We ran this route each morning at 6:30 a.m., 5k-6k jog and taxi back. Too hot afterwards to run back. We saw locals walking route each morning and observed yoga and exercise classes each morning. The ocean views were so nice, always somewhat overcast at that hour. That provided picture perfect background of ocean view.

20+ mile Malecon is in great shape, safe and a great place to people watch. The locals come out to walk and exercise when the sun goes down. when you are tired of walking flag down a tuk tuk and hit your next destination.

So many people walking and working out, be sure to wear sunblock and at least a bottle of water, don't drink water direct from drinkers, for some reason water taste is salty. Besides that everything is awesome!

During our week stay, my husband and I would walk down the Malecon and stop at anything that looked interesting .One of them included Pirate for dinner. It's a quaint little hut right on the beach. Food was good but their hospitality made up for it. Not to mention we saw the most beautiful sunset with our feet in the... More

Can you imagine a 21 km of seawalk, well that is the case of the Mazatlan seawalk, beautyful and with the perfect sunset view.

a bit out of the way unless to stay at one of the hotels along the malecon - which I would not advise and believe to be unsafe. Beaches are better further north, but the view here is great

Imagine six miles of boardwalk following the ocean, dotted with sculptures. Locals really love and use this walkway. You can watch runners, dog walkers, roller bladers, exercisers or sit on one of the new contemporary stone benches and watch the sunset. Lots of views along the way - fisherman bringing in their catch, pelicans, coconut stands, mussel divers, ocean water... More
