A look into the past

Family life is key in Mexico and it can be seen on the malecon..Families playing and picnicking together much like the 1950s in the US.

I liked the serenity and people watching as well as the beautiful lake. It is inspiring. There are vendors and a restaurant with good margaritas near by. What more could I need.

Beautiful lake and mountain views and great people watching. A must see on any trip to Ajijic. Relaxing stroll or vigorous walk anytime. Wonderful.

The walkway is a very nice community area for a stroll, however there is an issue with the lake level. The water level had receded so much that it does not feel very appealing. We were told that measures are being taken to help restore the lake, but until that is done this leaves a lot to be desired.

Enjoyed walking along the lake, checking out the skate park and outdoor gym! Nice place for a picnic or an ice cream.

Ready for a pleasant walk. This boardwalk was recently built when the lake level was rather high. Individuals and families may enjoy the walkway. The Malecon has play areas and BBQ's, as well as public restrooms.

We love the lakefront access that is a smooth walk into town. We walk from 6 corners to the lakefront almost everyday. It's a great walk into the heart of the Ajijic village. We often stop to sit and watch the birds and the local burros. So lovely, and so Mexican…just a beautiful way to walk into town without dealing... More

The Malecon in AJijic is a mini boardwalk on the lake. A wide sidewalk for strolling with scattered seating along the way. It's bordered by a grass area, picnic tables, children's play areas and even a skateboard ramp area. Quiet in the morning with dog walkers and joggers it becomes more populated in the afternoons, weekends and holidays. It's full... More
