Beautiful weather in May this year. Not to hot and not muggy like it usually is. Great scenic views. Great food (Looney Beans, Allegro, Angelica's, Aca Los Charros and Pura Vida) options.

We passed through here in the back of a golf cart type taxi. Lots of traffic and people we didn't get to stop too long but it looked like a beautiful beach.

Awesome but a tad far from hotel. A man jumps from rocks every day apparently but we missed it on the day we visited.

I would suggest to ride round trip the bus until the end of the line and come back. It is a nice ride and the end of the line has beautiful residential buildings and houses. It is different from downtown.

Nice views of the sea, a lot of local businesses in this place. Yo can just walk or get something to drink.

This is the longest Malecon that I have been on and the city of Mazatlan hes done a fantastic job of making it very accessible with many statues describing events, people and noteworthy items such as the cute little cabs they drive only in Mazatlan...More

We did not have time to walk along the water, but drove and it was truly beautiful. Next time will do the walk and enjoy.

I take a pulmonia to Valentino's and run to Fisherman's Monument and back. It's beautiful, I feel safe and comfortable. It's nice to see so many other travelers & locals enjoying such beautiful scenery.

Can you walk to the Malecon from the cruise ships?

No, you cannot walk from the cruise ships. We stopped on a tour that included the Malecon booked onboard the ship.
This is probably a strange request but I was wondering what the walking distance (miles) is from the El Cid Castilla Hotel to the Malecon area by the Valentino Restaurant/Night Club.

qiute short, I would say about 7-8 blocks from EL Cid Granada, go in the morning, the breeze is nice, and stop at the Panama for a treat and coffee.
