  • Much more activity and far more clean than Ajijic Malecon. Many people and lots of things to do. Must see this. Also many different inexpensive souvenirs.  more »
  • A very nice and clean place to walk, watching the nature and people strolling whit their families on the weekend. There are many places to try seafood.  more »
  • Great place to spend a few hours. Plenty of good restaurants and entertainment. If you go the boat rides are fun. There are a lot of vendors in the area of you're into souvenir shopping. It could be cleaner bit other than that i recommend.
  • Wonderful! A lovely place! Too bad the beach was cautioned off. But everything else was great and its a beautiful place!
