The malecon is the main hub of La Paz. It's where everyone goes in the evening. Strolling along the malecon you will often encounter community events and festivals. A trip to La Paz is not complete without a walk on the malecon.

great shops, an experience of Mexican culture without being too touristy, Tailhunter's restaurant and obviously the terrific views of the Sea of Cortes.

The beautiful malecon is a couple miles long, beautifully maintained, sculptures, activity, just a great place to start your morning or after dinner for a walk. This is where everything happens in La Paz!

As most Mexican cities I've visited, the malecon in La Paz does not disappoint. There are many wonderful works of art along the 5 kilometers the malecon stretches through the downtown waterfront of the capital city of Baja California Sur.

Always see people walking along the beach with children and dogs. The sunsets are beautiful. There restaurants nearby. The birds are diving for fish.

The Malecon is the perfect place to go for a jog before the sun comes up! Or you can walk along the water as the sun sets on the Sea of Cortez. Do try to avoid this area immediately after a heavy rain. It's situated at the low point in town and it's prone to flooding. Local crews are quick... More

Great place to stroll along the water to view the sunsets, run or jog or walk to restaurants. Always something going on at the Malecon as soon as the heat of the day is gone.
