Go every morning and every evening if you can.

What a joy to walk along this long malecon. Many people use it as their morning exercise and others use it as their evening stroll. Try both!

The Malecon in La Paz is about 4 km long, is always full of people walking, exercising, chatting. In the morning we like to walk all the way to the outskirts of town where there is a little open-air gym. On the way we watch the fishermen get ready to go out at sea and the small groups of people... More

The La Paz malecon is a great place to take a stroll, watch a sunset, have dinner and enjoy warm weather and friendly people. A relaxed, laid back setting. No bothersome street vendors like in Cabo San Lucas or other seaside spring break towns. Plenty of good restaurants across the street. Very pleasant experience.

It´s a nice attraction and it´s perfect for a couple night walk, enjoying the warm weather. I don´t really think you can enjoy it during the day because La Paz is a very hot place. Don´t forget the sun blocker!

La Paz Malecon is veeeery long and it perfectly suits everyone who can not live without long distance evening stroll, jogging, bicycling, skateboarding, longboarding, roller-skating! It has a perfect view as you can see lots of sailing boats, hobby cats, simple boats, yachts etc! Many of them are available for rental! Here you will always find various restaurants and cafes,...

You should experience this before it gets overrun by tours and trust me just like other Mexican towns get discovered and people move there and soon becomes crowded. Now it enjoyable and in chanting. If you like to people watch, this is the place and little people having fun. There are cany stands, ice cream shops, restaurants, bars and dress... More

we spend Christmas in La Paz and enjoyed walking the malecon. There are some beautiful statues along the walk and they had it all decked out for the holidays.
