This long expanse of concrete is great for walking, people watching,dog-walking, and taking in the sea breezes. Of course, there are many restaurants, bars, hotels along the way.

Beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the food and culture of Mazatlan. Delicious sea food and sometimes there were people performing or just dancing for fun in the streets.

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. .
