“A Wonderful Way to Unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Walking along the Malecon in Ajijic, is a time to do deep breathing and re-connect to natural and the water. The breeze on a warm day is very refreshing. It is always uplifting walking up and down the malecon. Also, a great place to meditate. If you are a people watcher this place is for you.

“Stroll down the malecon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you feel like a good morning stroll, this is an ideal place.
You have Lake Chapala on one side and different things to see
on the other (gym equipment, a little outdoor arena, a skateboard area to mention a few) Actually, people stroll here at all hours of the day. I just like the mornings.

“A Can't-Miss Part of Your Visit to Ajijic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you're a new visitor to Ajijic - or even if you've been there before - you really MUST visit the Ajijic Malecon. It's a lovely spot to take in the beauty of Lake Chapala and the surrounding mountains. Most of the week the tranquility of the malecon is a perfect complement to the natural beauty of the area - that is, apart from the one small area devoted to the young skateboarders - but even they are relatively "tranquil," at least for skateboarders. Sundays provide a people-watching taste of real Mexico, as families congregate for picnics and barbeques. And, you're only a few steps from "Colon, the main street in Ajijic, full of attractive shops and restaurants. For a larger malecon with more touristic hustle and bustle, and with equally beautiful views of the lake, also be sure to visit the malecon in nearby Chapala. Don't miss either one!

“Waterfront.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

This malecon is short but beautiful. Since I can't go to the ocean this must do. It's peaceful. At least during the week.
