The place to be when you are in Mahahual is the malecon on the beach. Malecon means basically “Boardwalk” in Spanish. The malecon is a pedestrian walkway with the beach to the east and businesses to the west. Many nice restaurants and shops line the malecon in Mahahual.

The downtown Mahahual malecon, although it is still in its infancy, it is already one of Mexico’s most spectacular. Mahahual, one of Mexico’s nicest and most pristine beaches, has the clear blue Caribbean sea, and a reef that runs the length of the entire downtown, protecting the beaches from any wave action and making the entire village beach like a giant swimming pool with palm trees.
