It was amazing to see La Paz come to life along the Malecon in the evening. The bronze artwork is beautiful and the sunsets are stunning. It's easy to walk and restaurants and bars are available across the street.

Feel the breeze from the sea, run, walk or ride your wheels down the Malecon. Wide, clean, cool mornings and lovely nights.

In the morning, there are lots of people jogging and walking dogs; after dark, tons of families out with their kids. A really fun place to walk.

Lots of activities abound for those who like to people watch or be watched by the people. Lots of exercising along the 5K Malecon and always lot's to do, even at night. Nicely appointed rubbish and recycle bins so make sure you use them as the community does.

The Malecon runs for several miles and is mostly in good condition. It is usually wide enough for walkers, runners, bikers, and roller bladers to share. There are many, many shops and restaurants right across the street along much of the Malecon.

We walked most of this on a cruise stop. Lots to look at, benches for seating and of course lots of eating/shopping options.

This boardwalk runs along the sea edge of La Paz. It features the characteristic white benches that can be seen through BCS, and offers opportunities for purchasing snacks, enjoying beaches, and dining across the street. A beautiful place to take in the beauty of La Paz.

This was my first visit back in 15 years. La Paz is a quaint Mexican town without the annoying tourists! Just trendy enough, with a few hip cafés showing up. Nice restaurants right on the water. In the evening as the temperature cools it's fun to watch the Malecón come alive with the locals. Everyone was nice and nobody harassed... More

A clean, well maintained place to walk with plenty of interest things to see. Some amuse - the outdoor public fitness centre for one!
