By night is better with boat tours and nightlife, live music and just a fun place to let the kids run free, spent hours here just wandering.

I stayed in Malecon for about one month and the area is always bustling with street vendors and musicians. It's definitely a great place to just sit, relax and people watch.

The place is very interesting and has a great view. You can observe the massive cargo ships. There are several spots with street food (corn, esquites, ice cream, etc). A lot of merchants selling souvenirs and local handcrafts (art pieces). Unfortunately the whole towns city...More

I fell in love with Veracruz' Malecón before I ever saw it 'live & in person'; when watching María Novaro's wonderful 1991 film, Danzón. When I was able to visit, the walk along the waterfront did not disappoint. I love the sculpture honoring the port's...More

Came here on our first day. It is ok but lacks charm. It's a nicer walk if you keep walking after the boardwalk toward boca del Rio as it isn't as crowded and you have a beautiful view of the ocean and rocks. Nice way...More

Walked several kilometers along the Malecon. It's fine but would be nice if they had more trees for shade.

This is a great place to take a walk anytime of the day or night. There are excellent views of the port and street vendors all over the place.

It's a nice location for a stroll in the hot months of summer, it's great to go with family! They have a lot of curio shops.

Our hotel was smack in the middle of the Malecon so my wife and I grew very intimate with the pulse of this area. The Malecon reeks of history and contains interesting buildings, statues, cafes, and curio shops. It's where you can board the famous...More

I stayed at the Emporio, so I had a good view of everyone on the waterfront. Was very popular, but not much to look at. One night, there was a kid using a green laser to blind people (including me), so that wasn't fun. Interesting...More
