Mazatlan’s Malecón: a four-mile walk by the ocean


Mazatlán’s gorgeous four-mile boardwalk could give Puerto Vallarta‘s a run for its money.

Especially as Mazatlán’s Malecón is also decorated with several unusual yet beautiful statues and monuments.

This is also where you’ll find the most daytime activity, starting around the Zona Dorada (hotel zone), snaking along the Paseo Claussen and through Old Mazatlán before ending at Playa Olas Altas.

Residents and vacationers favor this stretch for jogging, cycling or just strolling.

What you can’t do here, however, is sunbathe: Most of the Malecón’s “beach” is too short for lounging.

Head north to the Playa las Gaviotas or south to Olas Altas if you want to lie about.
