Enjoying the Weather on the Ajijic Malecón
A healthy way to enjoy the wonderful climate of the Lake is exercising outdoors.
El Malecón de Ajijic is a great place to get a workout. Considering that the town's streets are in stone, the boardwalk provides a flat surface with different textures such as cement, sand and gardens. It has a jogging track of 460 yards and a route for walking or running that is 900 yards, a volley ball court a basketball ball court, 2 playgrounds for children and a small outdoor theater for more artistic events outdoor..
The boarwalk in Ajijic is most visited in the mornings and evenings because that is when the sun is not that strong and you can enjoy the best weather to exercise. People of all ages, run, walk, jog, ride bikes, walk their dogs and it has ramps to also do kayaking in the morning if the wind is not too strong.
In the afternoon the children fill this place of joy and play, they give life to the boardwalk. Sports fans crowd the volleyball and basketball courts,mothers with their children have a special place in the playgrounds with soft surfaces where children can play without getting hurt.
Many people are regulars to bring their dogs for a good walk with a nice lake view, and the dogs can end up with a dip in the lake to cool off. The Ajijic boardwalk also has free classes of yoga, boot camp, aerobics, etc. during the weekends.
During the rainy season, I usually go to the mountain, there is the best trekking exercise, with incredible views, but now that the mountains are drier, the boardwalk is the best substitute of the hill. The wind blowing from the west will not let you sweat, sunsets and the colors are amazing. Every day I walk the boardwalk, because I like taking my dogs out for a walk, so they have fun and I do exercise in addition to meet my friends there and enjoy a good conversation.
So fill yourself with energy and start or finish your day with a workout on the boardwalk.
