8. EXPERIENCE THE MALECON LIKE A LOCAL Probably one of Mazatlan’s most memorable features is the seaside boardwalk. Known as the longest in Mexico and second longest in the world, it spans 4.5 miles and is the prime location for sunset views from all points of the boardwalk due to its unobstructed views of the ocean. Take a walk, run or bike up and down the malecon and blend in with the locals. Stop to take pictures with each of the monuments that line the boardwalk from start to finish.
