It seems that for over a year now the Malacon has been under construction for one reason or another and traffic has been diverted away from the ocean. So my advice is to not plan to travel in that area until construction is completed.

If you’re going to Mazatlan then you just have to walk the malacon. Great exercise, people watching, vendors, ocean activity watching and shopping possibilities. Takes you from town centre to the gold zone,both areas worth a visit.

The malecon has been undergoing renovation for a while. We're told it reopens for one lane of traffic each Direction next Monday. Can't wait to see the improvements. This section along the water is gorgeous great place to walk

Watch out for Paloma drivers offering gifts to attend a Time Share presentation. If you don't buy you don't get your gifts and you are escorted out to a taxi. If you demand your gifts they threaten you that they won't pay for a ride...More
