I'm not sure where else to put that La Paz is just a wonderful city to visit. It's not touristy, and especially in February, there were many days when we were the only tourists in sight in restaurants and on the street. There are a couple of Oxxos at which to get supplies though the main shopping is a few... More

We loved the walk along the beach and the street that was full of life. They blocked off a street for vendors, food and entertainment. We had great fish tacos and sampled dried fruit. The dancers were great and in full costume. A lot of shopping opportunities as well.

The Malecon is a great place to stroll day or night. The sculptures along the way are beautiful and interesting. You have easy access to all the shops and restaurants along the way. And there are many places to stop and absorb the blue sky and water in the bay.

The walk is spectacular along the ocean front of La Paz. The city keeps the Malecon clean and tidy, in comparison to Cabo which is really dirty.

The Malacon in La Paz is a gem for the city. It is long enough for a real nice roller blade or even a relaxing bike ride. There are separate bike lanes between the walkway and car traffic. There are occasionally bands playing and certainly we saw many people out enjoying a stroll - day or night. It certainly seems... More

An easy walk with a fresh sea view and lots of shops, restaurants and people watching. It is clean and safe and one can stop for coffee or a beer whenever one wants a break. The center piece of La Paz.

We didn't exactly experience it as a living room, but we found ourselves there every day, mingling with locals and visitors alike. Great places to eat, stroll and people watch. Also evidently ride a bike dressed as a golden pirate, but in that activity we did not partake.

Great place for a walk along the 'harbour' to enjoy the sites. Typical restaurants and bars along the way. Not a lot to see but interesting.

Perfect place to walk, jog, take pictures or just relax on a bench. We were able to walk the Malecon day and well into the night and feel safe. There are no such things as street hustlers here and you can enjoy the view and beautiful sculptures along the way.
