MAZATLÁN MALECÓN: ROLLERBLADING, BICYCLING, AND SO MUCH MORE

Many Enjoy Bicycling Along the Ocean on the Mazatlan Malecón

       Thirteen Mile Long Promenade: The Mazatlán Malecón, a concrete walkway along the beach, is one of the longest Malecóns  in the world! Some claim that it is the longest in the world. This promenade is nearly thirteen miles long (twenty-one kilometers) and wide enough for plenty of traffic including bicycles, pedestrians, skateboarders, strollers, dogs, and people on rollerblades.  Everyone is tolerant of beginner rollerbladers like us who are wobbling along, looking for the next handrail to grab onto. We don't look smooth and polished like most skaters who buzz past us, but we have fun and get a good workout. This is "Healthy Living in Mexico!"

Sight-Seeing and Spending Time Together: This is a place where couples, singles, and families come to spend time together, both during the daytime and in the evening when it is well lit. Along the Malecón, there are cliffs, monuments, gazebos, colonial buildings, hotels, shops, restaurants, bars, many beautiful sculptures, street vendors, and plenty of new benches for resting and watching people.

Rollerblading and Walking on the Mazatlán Malecón (Boardwalk): We have frequently enjoyed walking for miles on the Mazatlán Malecón, watching the people, the ocean, the birds, and all of the action. Last year we regretted that we hadn’t brought our rollerblades, and were glad we had packed them this year. Not only is rollerblading a fun way to see miles of the Mazatlán beachfront area in one day, it is very good exercise!

  3. Rollerblading with the baby stroller can be a great and awesome experience. There are chances for the dads and moms to easily handle rollerblading with baby stroller.
