Nice place to stroll in the evenings. Some nice statues, some public beaches. This is where the water activity companies are and most tourist restaurants.

La Paz does the malecon right. This malecon is 5 miles long, perfect for strolling, running, biking, roller blading, and watching the amazing sunsets. It is lined with some beautiful sculptures. We were there in early Dec so the city was decorated for Christmas, adding to the view. Very romantic.

Beach road that runs along the harbor front with a wide walkway on the beach side. Locals roller blade, run and bike along the sidewalk in the evening. There are many restaurants, bars and shops along the Malecon, plus outdoor kiosks for local goods. In December there was an outside LED wall set-up showing live broadcasts every night leading up...

La Paz strikes me as an outpost of XXL people, they seems t be always eating or buying food, so I sat on the nice waterfront and tried to count the non-consuming passers-by, even the joggers were eating ice cream. everyone seems pretty friendly, but beware of cheating cabbies.

The malecon is a beautiful waterfront walk about maybe 1 mile long. There are many shops lined along the malecone, mostly eateries, but there are other shops like sourvenirs and such. Worth a walk there while at La Paz.

A nice way to finish off the evening after a meal or if you just want to see the sites. An amazing amount of work that went into completing the entire walkway. Complete with sculptures, families and exercise buffs, this is a great way to see and get the feel of La Paz.

The malecon is very nice to walk on, there is the beautiful view of the water and little fish in the water. It is a good distance to enjoy a good walk and view. Be careful because some tiles are missing and i nearly biffed it a couple times because i was looking at the pelicans hanging out on nearby... More

Seems odd to be giving something so generic as the malecon a review... its pretty much what you'd expect... but... - unlike most places in mexico, its very UN-touristy. relatively few trinket stores, people hassling you, etc... pretty much restaurants, "dive shops" (well, tours, fishing, etc), and local city stuff. - the water side is fairly empty (business wise), so...

How can anyone go to La Paz and not take a leisurely stroll along the Malecon? It is a great place to 'people watch' especailly the families enjoying time together!
