Coastal destinations in Mexico have one main attraction, and that is the malecon. It is ideal for those who want to know the most representative of the city, having different options gathered in the same place.
These are long barriers that contain the waves of the sea, impassable walls that have gradually become the heart of the territory. Go to waterfront venues to enjoy delicious food or drinks, watch street performances and walk up and down the promenade. Mexico’s malecones will be the backdrop for your next dream vacation.
The Mazatlan Malecon
A great place to visit on your summer days off is Mazatlan, and more specifically its malecon. It is said to be one of the longest in the country, a must if you want to see the most important points of Sinaloa.
If you have already stayed in other coasts of the country, such as the Oasis chain of hotels in Cancun, you may want to visit other vacation destinations that are also very popular. That is why the nicknamed ”pearl of the pacific” can be a good option to travel with your young children as it is perfect for family tours and beach plans.
Only on Mazatlan’s Malecon you will find different restaurants with a wide variety of gastronomic options, historical monuments of all kinds as well as a wide variety of cultural offerings to have fun with the ones you love the most. También puedes visitar edificios de índole religiosa, el acuario o centros de spa perfectos para mimarte como es debido.
The Malecon Fundadores
The malecon Fundadores is located in Puerto Peñasco, in the state of Sonora. It is known for being one of the boardwalks with the best views, both for sunrises and sunsets overlooking the Sea of Cortez. It has a beautiful harbor with boats coming in and out to continue its main economic activity: fishing.
One of the monuments related to the local economy is the statue of the fisherman, a must that we recommend you to visit. That is why Puerto Peñasco is the perfect place to indulge in seafood and seafood products. You also can’t miss the local stores to buy typical handicrafts, jewelry and souvenirs to take back home.
The San Felipe boardwalk
To finish with this small but great list of malecones in Mexico, we bring you the malecon of San Felipe. This is where life makes its way in front of the Sea of Cortez, a beautiful place to enjoy the simplest things, such as music, food and beautiful scenery.
The local gastronomy, whose main snack is fish, seafood and other sea delicacies, is worthy of the best 5-star restaurants. We advise you to schedule your visit in November, coinciding with the acclaimed Shrimp Festival in which different national and international restaurants offer dishes with this crustacean.
