“Beautiful and serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

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.

“Love the boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

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.

“Malecon (Boardwalk) is lovelier than ever. Center of La Paz' life.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

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 of lovely statues along the way, and lots of new children's parks. The actual boardwalk itself has been expanded and widened. Be sure and read the poem at the beautiful Reina del Mar statue-it is in Spanish and is very lovely.

“An evening stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

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 th evening and the calm calm sea!
