Unlike the Cancun one there is no queue. Nice setting with the fisherman statue behind it. Good location to walk either up or down the Malecon

The malecon in Chetumal runs for a fair distance along the rocky shore of the Atlantic Ocean, There are hotels & restaurants on the non beach side, it is a pleasant walk with a nice breeze on hot days, but little else.

We walked for half an hour along the Malecon by the ferry terminal on a very quiet day, some areas had a very unpleasant odour and the area was very unattractive.
