11 Fun Free things to do in Mazatlan, Mexico

Walk along the Malecon
The Malecon in Mazatlan is a thirteen-mile long path that stretches along the coast which is one of the longest in the world. It runs from the north side of Olas Altas thru to Avenida del Mar at Valentino’s. There are many street vendors selling a variety of merchandise along the way and some fantastic monuments and status to see too. The way the path was created ensures that there is easy access to all the amazing beaches. You won’t find many hotels directly on the beaches except in the Golden Zone most of the beaches are protected by the way the pathway was designed safeguarding the stunning beauty.

A day at El Velero’s

The first time I wrote about this modest little island Isle de las Piedras (Stone Island) I showed you the less traveled side. Today I’m going to share more about this great getaway but on the more touristy side. There are a ton of activities you can partake in on this side. There several restaurants and a couple of small hotels you can visit here. The majority of them are directly on the beach with palapa style area’s to sit, relax, eat and play. Since Jeff is still in Alaska this time I went with a dear friend of mine and another friend’s young daughter.
