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.

If you are there anyway, it's a nice walk. It felt very safe, even after dark. Nice way to walk back after dinner. I would never go so far as to call it clean. Some good taquerias.

The Malecon is a must-do after dinner stroll for all visitors to La Paz. Seems every year, the city adds an interesting statue or other feature to make the experience interesting.

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.
