El MalecĂłn


Located in the heart of the Old Port, this is a traditional meet-up spot and emblematic area where you can stop and admire the greatness of the Sea of Cortez.

In the main plaza you will come across the large Shrimp fisherman’s statute, the symbol of our city, as well as the central statue emblematic of two doves, and further along a monument to José el Pescador.

The malecon is encircled by Colosio Plaza and a corridor full of curios shops, bars, and restaurants. It’s a place to visit with your family for a nice stroll or a pleasant bike ride, perhaps a visit to the curios shops for a souvenir to take home. 

At the right time, you can watch the tourist and fishing boats as they enter and leave the docks. This is, without a doubt, a place you shouldn’t miss whenever you visit Puerto Peñasco.
