“Invigorating and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

A walk along the malecon serves many functions. It is a good exercise, especially if you pick up the pace. It has eccentric statutes to appreciate. If you are hungry, a spot of food stalls, which by the way is right in front of the rock divers. Last but not least, it is the spot to watch the sunset.

“Scary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was awesome to watch the cliff divers, but they expect you to pay to watch them. They will even follow you even though you gave the money to one jumper.

“A lovely walk in mid day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The malecon is not as spruced up or commercial as that in Puerto Vallarta. Rather it is a seawall several kilometers long, above the beach. At the north end is the Zona Dorada, the gold tourist zone. At the south end is the fishermen's beach. About midway are several palapa-style seafood restaurants. A pleasant walk one can enjoy with a moderate onshore breeze keeping one from overheating.
