This place is a bit disappointing if you're expecting a lot of restaurants and things to do. Nice people watching at night. The statues are interesting.

For our family trip, having the Malecon so close to the hotel was great for the kids, for beach walks. It's a beautiful and pretty well-kept waterfront. There was a little damage left over from Odile, but nothing to complain about. There was also a good police presence there along the main drag, and this was the case all around... More

Went during the Christmas holiday. It was so nice to see the Christmas decorations and all the families strolling on the Melacon. Beautiful atmosphere.

The Malecon is very cool. 9K of well paved sidewalk. Lots of people, bars, restaurants, stores, and tourist activities. It is almost impossible to be in La Paz and not see the Malecon.

Great for everybody from singles to families. Places to eat, dance and even have a ice cream. Loved going down in the evening for a walk and a little people watching. On the weekend it is a very bustling place.

It goes for over 5 k, is well built and heart-stoppingly beautiful and in January not overly busy, during the week everywhere we went seemed to have few people, very uncrowded.

Not touristy. Locals mingle with the visitors and people are friendly. I felt safe. Lots of great restaurants and good shopping.

This is a very wide concrete sidewalk that runs along the bay in La Paz, BCS, Mexico. It is next to a well traveled roadway and the gateway to the downtown area. Restaurants abound and there is always someone walking, riding or driving along this great corridor. Highly rated people watching place.

I am a regular visitor to La Paz. I love the Malecon. Even at night, there are families enjoying an evening outside, along the bay. I have always felt very safe, even traveling by myself at night.

Having lived in Mexico for years I do enjoy seeing all the differing cities and towns and each have their own personality . The malecon is a nice stroll for miles alongside La Paz bay . In the during the day and night the crowd changes ,from the exercise and morning walkers to the cruising and music of the ten... More
