Malecon, Mazatlan

4.3
Take a stroll along the 7 km (4.9 mile) Malecon, a water front esplanade that showcases the city's culture. Observe the day-to-day life of the locals, vintage American cars, and well-weathered hotels. Couples visit the seawall to take a romantic walk, and artists and philosophers can appreciate the area as well; people-watch is a prime activity. Be sure to bring plenty of water if you're wandering in the heat of the day; once the day winds down, consider grabbing a beer and finding a good spot to sit and watch the sunset. Work out when and for how long to visit Malecon and other Mazatlan attractions using our handy Mazatlan holiday maker app.

  • The Malecon runs along the beach and is great for long walks. There are lovely sculptures and/or statues along the way.  more »
  • We visited the Mazatlán Malecon in early February. Walked part of it; one would need to be in pretty good shape to walk the whole distance and return.  more »
