On some days there are several vendors (not pushy) selling handmade jewelry, weaving etc. Restaurants of all kinds are close by on the neighbouring streets if you need a bite. Plenty of space to stroll or jog if you prefer .Shady areas are available and parking is usually not a problem. Sundays are a bit too overcrowded for me though... More

We have been coming here for 4 years. It is a great place to walk. A great place to just look at the lake. But my favorite is to watch the families. If you come between 4 pm and dark, you will find the Mexican families gather here. They will eating, kids will be playing, having fun on the beach,... More

The walk along the Ajijic Malecon is a pleasure on any day, at any time. On a busy day, it's a great place to see families and kids enjoying themselves all up and down the walkway, and bbq pits line one area so that people can stay for the day. On any day though, the view out over the lake... More

Great on the weekend to see the families enjoying the beach. Very pretty, with lots of shorebirds on the lake.

The Ajijic male con is a delightful lakeside boardwalk - made out of flat, easy-to-walk-on flagstones. Evenly spaced trees spend some shade when even the lake brise is hot, and numerous benches allow you to sit and watch the many promenaders and sports fans working out on some of the exercise equipment installed along the way. The malecon is a... More

The Malecon is best on Sunday where it is the place to have fun, eat, drink and people watch. Loved the locals coming on their horses in all their best dress.

Went to both the Chapala male on and Ajijic. This one was far better...cleaner, better maintained area, etc. We spent the better part of a Sunday just soaking up all the entertainment and people watching.

Wonderful spot for walks, flat even surface in contrast to the cobble streets of the village. Wonderful view of the lake and fun place to "people watch" at weekends as many Mexican families come to enjoy the area.

No matter what you want to do, the Ajijic Malecon is probably the place to do it. It's a park, it's a garden, it's a lakeside walkway, and it's often a site for parties and fiestas. Add in a couple of outdoor restaurants/bars, a work-out area, a basketball court and a skateboard park, and it caters to everyone from dog-walkers... More
