“They still working on upgrades”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The Malecon has a few restaurants. It will be nice once is done, There was lots of construction while we were there, dusty pot holes and no traffic could drive thru

“Malecon still under Construction”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We were in Loreto in September 2012 and the Malecon is still under construction--they started construction around January 2012 and they are less than 1/2 done, It has really affected the businesses right on Malecon--You can bet this will not be complete until sometime in 2013. But Loreto is still a wonderful place to visit--quaint little town--good restaurants--good fishing and good diving. Not that many tourists--which is not a bad thing for those that do visit

“Malecon Reconstruction”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

While the Malecon is under major construction, what is complete is spectacular. Love it now because there are no cars, just foot traffic. Loreto should make that permanent.

“Under Construction”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

The malecon of Loreto has promise. Right now it is completely torn up and the roads are a mess. One is unable to drive on most of the malecon stretch except along the beach near the Marina. I saw progress in our visit and I think the finished product will be worth the mess. There are a few businesses which front the malecon, it seemed that many were shut down due to construction. I hope that more will move into the area as it becomes more attractive for vendors and tourists to frequent.
