There's nothing more romantic than strolling on the Malecon after dinner in the evening. The views are amazing, the sunsets spectacular and the crashing waves on an almost deserted beach surround you with the feeling of being alone. The truth is you won't be - because the night time stroll has been popular with couples forever. .

The main drag in Mazatlan goes for miles along the main beach downtown. Restaurants, hotels, awesome beach, awesome waves, waves are surfable, historic statues/artwork, people watching, street vendors, food and drinks, taxis/pulmonias going back and forth like crazy... If you can't have a good time here, you just aren't very much fun. Make sure you walk or at least ride... More

On our trip to Puerto Vallarta, we spent one after noon strolling alone the Malecon, a 3+ mile long sidewalk in downtown Puerto Vallarta along the beautiful bay of Banderas. It was a beautiful, well kept and maintained sidewalk, lined with shops and restaurants...with seating right next to the water.

Easy to walk to if staying near a Golden Horn hotel. Or you can take a pulmonia's from your hotel. Pulmonia's are golf car-like taxicabs - a wonderful and unique method of getting around in Mazatlan.

A great place to visit, but it stretches along so far and things are so far apart that you could wear yourself out walking trying to visiting it all. This, however, is the northern continuation of Olas Altas, a more intimate ocean walk and restaurant area half a mile (1 km) to the south. On the way, you pass a... More

A very picturesque path along the coastline. This was part of our city tour and we drove along the coast. There are many very nice statues to see and of course the famous Cliff Divers. A must see.
