The malecon here has undergone some very nice renovations over the years. I would even go so far as to say it one of the most beautiful in Mexico. The carnival that is held here in the spring or each year is popular and a Mexican fiesta not to be missed. The parade held in the evening is worth buying... More

Clean; well kept. Beautiful spot to walk. Lots of good restaurants & art galleries within walking distance. Nice, friendly, helpful people. Bus depot for tourists is right on the malecon. One can take a bus there to Cabo. Very helpful tourist police.

Our cruise took a detour to La Paz due to a hurricane. We were pretty disappoint however La Paz didn't let us down. Malecon is a very scenic walk the ocean is on one side and all of the shops are on the opposite side. So much to see and take in the people are very friendly and don't haggle... More

Plenty to see and do here, the locals love to use this area for exercise. In the evenings families are out for strolls, there are joggers and cyclists with a nice designated lane area, and street vendors out as well. This makes for a wonderful family evening out enjoying the sunset and some brave souls even go for a swim... More

The Malecon is where everybody takes a stroll in the evening. With the restaurants on the side, it is a very popular location. Unlike other more touristic towns. This Malecon is really for local families. Not much venders to disrupt your stroll, the sunsets here are fantastic.

Unlike Cabo, La Paz is a real Mexican city with lots of culture, great authentic places to eat and the people are absolutely wonderful.
