If you come to La Paz of course you will end up on Malecon to enjoy an afternoon or evening stroll. Lovely palm trees and interesting statues on the sea side and restaurants and ice cream places on the town side. Fun to watch people, the sea and the sunset. Ten cuiado crossing the street with traffic but cars mostly... More

Calm coastal road, families and quiet water front. So much better than Cabo for families. No load pumping music just nice people. Try Rancho Viejo, classic taco 2 locations all close by.

The Malecon (boardwalk) is the most beautiful, peaceful walk anyone can take in La Paz. There are amazing statues all along the way. Everyday you can find joggers, walkers, or bike riding. At night the families come out and it is a lot of fun. There are vendors out selling food and even toys for the kids. It is a... More

Always nice to stroll along the bay. People watching, occasional dolphin sightings, plenty of birds and easy access to a quick snack, a cocktail or a beer . How good is that! Today we were overwhelmed by a cruise ships clientele...but good for the local economy and they left! This is an exceptionally clean safe well maintained highlight of La... More

The City is extremely clean and friendly. The street is swept, and the statues cleaned, on a daily basis.

The "Malecon" is the heart of this city and the most beautiful view of the Sea of Cortez . . . especially for the FABULOUS sunsets!!! It is hard to get enough of this view! Many people gather in this area in the evening to eat at one of the many restaurants, enjoy ice cream, walk, jog, visit, etc. The... More

The Malecon is one sight you do not want to miss when you visit La Paz and it is very close to where most tourists will stay anyway. The statues are wonderful. When the sun goes down, it is the HAPPENING place in La Paz. During the day, you can walk along the beachfront for shells and stop for a... More

Safe walkway right on the water. Several restaurants and a few shops, but more shopping on side streets and a block or two up from the water. Actually gets busier at night, when the weather cools down, many families and people gather along the waterfront to play, picnic and party.

Great artwork along the waterfront. I wish our waterfront city had statues to admire. Wear comfortable shoes along the statue side and take pictures, then cross the street and have drinks, food and shop.
