Quiet, clean. Perfect for a family or with your dog. This is the best place to lazily waste away a Sunday afternoon.

We walk the Malecon almost every day. The views of the Lake, the mountains, and the clouds are amazing. Early morning during the week, you mostly see Gringos walking their dogs. Mid day it's nearly deserted. Later, there are lots of school kids planning soccer or basketball. On the weekends it's really hopping. Lots of families, especially on Sunday, picnicking... More

This is terrific early in the morning. It's a good, easy place to walk briskly then, much easier to navigate than the cobbled streets. Pretty, well-tended gardens with outdoor exercise equipment.

Several cafes to sit in the shad and enjoy watching people. Cute little stands selling arts and crafts on the path out of the Malecon.

Great place to just wander, see the vendors, have lunch or sit and read watching the water and people.

Beautiful view of lake and surrounding hills. Saw looks of migrating birds. Lots of friendly people. Lots of internationals, mostly Canadians winter in this area. It's a wonderful no stress walk and village. Great shopping and restaurants near by. Check out the weekend events there.

The Malecon in Ajijic was really nice to walk every morning, extremely clean and well kept with people just relaxing on the benches in the shade. The people were are all so nice, everyone said hello and we never saw any vendors walking and asked to buy something like in other spots in Mexico.

We walk our dogs here regularly. Beautiful sunsets, love watching the local children. Great place at sunset to get an ice cream and get some exercise. One of our favorite places for leisurely walking with the dogs.

Beautiful! Views of the sunrise and sunset daily from this north side of Lake Chapala. Families enjoy gathering at the park along the malecon every weekend. We were privileged to be there just prior to Easter and there were mariachi bands and many celebrations happening. Cons: Restroom at park is a pay-per-use, so be prepared. Otherwise, best to stop and... More
