Great place for a stroll

I mean, why wouldn't you? Stroll here, I mean. Unless you were on a bike, great for that too. Beautiful views, and the seafood shacks along the way cook up the best food in town.

Just an unusually, interesting drive. Grab a Pulmonia and ride from Historic Mazalan to the Golden Zone (get a fixed price before jumping aboard).

11 mile curved concert walk, with historical brass monuments. Public Beach on one side, plenty of restaurants on the other. Interesting and a must in Mazatlan.

Kind of nice as found just by chance. Some nice acts and good people watching. Not all that close to some of the resorts and would not make a special trip to see. Just nice to be on a beach/ocean. Had a fish/not nice spell at times.

The malecon is a great safe place for a walk day or evening. We have taken a taxi to the Shrimp bucket and walked back to El Cid. It is several miles, we have watched the divers and much more along our walk. The weekends are busiest and there are plenty of places to get a drink, food or just... More

Worth the walk! We walked almost the entire thing from our Marina resort to the cliff divers. Very pretty view on the bay area and all the hotels. It a frequently used path through town. Pretty well maintained along it. Not many street vendors that we experienced.

Mazatlans malecon - or sea walk - is the perfect place for a long walk, affording endless views of the Pacific, lots of opportunity for views of local life, and many restaurants along the way. Most of the businesses and restaurants are across the street from the malecon, and the others are down on the sand, making for uncongested walking... More
