We have lived in Ajijic for almost a year and start most days, after coffee of course, on the Malacon for a brisk or leisurely walk. Even at 6:30 am we feel perfectly safe on this well-lit, level and paved "boardwalk" along the lake front. Beautiful sun-rise and moon-set scenes are an added treat, There are a nice mix of... More

This is a nice place to stroll, jog or cycle. Weekends they have local bands and music in the evenings in the park.

Great spot for a leisurely stroll or a morning jog. There is even some basic fitness equipment in the adjoining park.

The malecon was pretty empty and not much going on. A little run-down. The shops and restaurants around the malecon (a couple of blocks into town) are nice. Strolling here it is nice, but nothing special in my opinion

The malecon in Ajijic is beautiful. We brought our 7 lbs maltese with us and found ourselves having to pick him up quite often because of large dogs running loose (you never know...). So, just be aware of that should you too bring your fur baby with you.

It is so nice to walk along the Malecon in the early morning with the sunrise. Great place to enjoy a nice power walk saying "Buenos Dias" to everyone.
