The beautifully done malecon gives both locals and tourists a lovely place to spend any part of their day, but the sunsets can be a magnificent memory for your photo book.

Strolling the Malecon is one of the most popular activities in the evening and on the weekends with locals and tourists alike. It's a great way to soak up local culture and to find a restaurant for lunch or dinner with a view.

There's a very nice malecon that goes along the waterfront in downtown La Paz. You can enjoy the views, the boats, and the people watching. What makes this malecon unique is all the beautiful marine life sculptures you'll see. And when you get hungry, there are plenty of bars and restaurants across the street.

Very nice boardwalk along the bay for strolls any time of the day or evening. Weekends are more crowded and not as serene, but full of energy and lots to see. Many restaurants across the street for a great meal or a cool drink. Not many good shops though.

We had a pleasant evening watching the families walk past. It was a very pleasant change from Cabo where the street and beach vendors can become overbearing at times.

My husband and I got engaged in La Paz in 2000. We came back in 2003, and again just passing through in 2012. The city is every bit as great as it was in 2001. A great deal of investment has been made by the federal and state governments, and the Malecon is a big beneficiary of the funding. Lots... More

An evening stroll on the Malecon in La Paz is a wonderful experience. There are a load of families out and about, groups of young people doing what young people do without getting in anyones way. There are traders selling interesting bits and pieces but nobody is pressing or pushy so you can relax and just enjoy the cool of... More

It's the best side walks in Mexico, you can view the gorgeous ocean, at the sun set, after it you can rent a bike or double bike and get fun there, in the night there's a lot of activity, very good!
