It has beautiful views and in the evening it's full with locals and tourists exercising: running, cycling and walking. There's also lots of places to eat, Shop and bars just across... More

A paved walkway beachside in La Paz, the Malecon, is gorgeous. The total length is over 5k (or so I was told). It is extremely hot in mid to late September so I couldn't bare walking or running in the heat. An early morning or evening stroll was all I could handle. Along the way are beautiful statues of sea... More

The Malecon is a long promenade on the Bay of La Paz. There are thoughtfully placed benches in the shade of palm trees, and umbrella covered spots on the strands of beach where you can take a swim. Right across the street are good shops for browsing and outdoor bars and cafes to enjoy the view.

The malecon road is highly developed and filled with restaurants and cafes. Very touristy with a walkway pavement that is maintained well.

Best View of La Paz's beautiful sunset. Enjoyed early morning walks with my husband and Bichon. Shops, restaurants, coffee houses directly across the Malecon. One of La Paz' s precious jems.

Melecon is the beach side promenade along Paseo Alvaro Obregon. There are wide sidewalks, art work, benches, and other attractions along the way. Across the street are many restaurants, bars, shops etc. While the area right in front of the shops can be a little risky with potholes and other obstacles, and a few friendly vendors inviting you in to...

Is the heart of La Paz, has a lot of sculptures, shops, restaturants, children playgrounds by the beach, a lot of people jogging, on their bicycles, etc. The best moment to be there is on sunset where you can take the best pics you can imagine.

They had a mini carnival set up for kids the night we were there. Mainly locals - or maybe tourist from the mainland. Perfect spot to get an ice cream and walk along the waterfront and people watch.
