Mazatlan's Malecon, we were told, is the world's longest.

Of course there is always the sea and on some side streets you will find an aquarium or... More

The Mazatlan Malecon seems to go on forever. There are miles and miles of walkway along the beautiful sea. We were there during Carneval and the parade. If you get a chance this is something to see. There were hundreds of thousands of people watching the night parade which was all floats covered in lights.

This is a beautiful place for a jog, walk, or biking. Along the seaside with a wonderful breeze. Lots of places to stop and snap a photo.

A very nice, older malecon (Boardwalk) with access to the beach. Restaurants and shops along the way, street vendors and cliff divers. Worth a nice walk from wherever you start on its long, 7 mile route

had a wonderful day walking about 2/3 of the Malecon... we stopped and checked out various objects for sale along the way... enjoyed a few great tidal pools... also had lunch in one of the restaurants right on the beach... be sure to bring some water to drink and wear comfy shoes for walking on cement and in sand;-)

Thank catherinecK9335NB
