This area is perfect for your morning power walk or your afternoon stroll - pleasant breeze on warm days.

Delightful walk, very family oriented during the day and early evening, adult entertainment late evening. Interesting sculptures and lots of nearby restaurants. Great place to watch sunsets.

It was a very "real" place where families enjoyed the evenings, young people enjoyed each other and everyone was courteous, accepting and friendly.

Lots of Latin American waterfront towns have their Malecon, a pedestrian walkway that is busy with strollers (people strolling, not the obnoxious space hogs that ignorant parents put their kids in so they don't have to interact with them) day and night. Spain has its Ramblas that serve the same purpose. The La Paz Malecon is active around the clock.... More

Some places just make you feel great and for me the La Paz Malecon is one of those places. This coastal promenade has it all. Laura, coconut and date palms line the paver walkway. You stop to admire the many sculptures like the La Ballena (the whale) or Robert Wyland's marine mural. In the morning joggers can be seen but... More

Strolling along the La Paz waterfront is a must. Just don't do it at high noon with all the other tourists. In the early morning you'll see joggers and tai chi practitioners; in the evening Mexican families are out with the kids and it's much more appealing. Grab a paleta (watermelon, mango and coconut are our favorites) and enjoy people... More

By far one of the nicest features of this city is the 2+ mile long malecon or boardwalk all along the bay. The side walk is about 12-15 ft wide with seating areas at each street ending. You don't have to cross roads or deal with traffic if you stay on the water side. At almost each seating area or... More

The malecon in La Paz is one of my favorite places in the world. Always something going on. The locals take such pride in their reputation as Mexicos friendliest city and proove it every day... When you get tired of the time share come ons and high priced glitz of Los Cabos head north a couple hours to see the... More

I like La Paz and the Malecon because it has such a tranquil beauty; the water sparkles with promise and there are plenty of places on the road side of the Malecon to eat, drink and shop, or you can simply sit on one of the white benches and contemplate the bay. The art pieces strategically placed along the walk... More
