“Scary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was awesome to watch the cliff divers, but they expect you to pay to watch them. They will even follow you even though you gave the money to one jumper.

A bit disappointed compared to Puerto Vallarto. No accessibility

“A lovely walk in mid day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The malecon is not as spruced up or commercial as that in Puerto Vallarta. Rather it is a seawall several kilometers long, above the beach. At the north end is the Zona Dorada, the gold tourist zone. At the south end is the fishermen's beach. About midway are several palapa-style seafood restaurants. A pleasant walk one can enjoy with a moderate onshore breeze keeping one from overheating.

“People enjoying life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

All along the Malecon you can enjoy people enjoying themselves. Plenty to see, from fishermen working the boats and sorting their catch to seniors getting in their daily exercise. Lots of dogs and their walkers...everyone smiling
