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.

The Malecon is a great walk in La Paz, on the water, good to watch the sunset. People watching, right in the middle of all the restaurants and sites.

On both the La Paz and Isla Mujers malecons, there are some incredible statues to see. Some are graceful and some even humorous. Sitting on the malecon wall while enjoying a delicious Mexican ice cream cone is a wonderful way to pass an evening. People watching there is also a fun thing to do. Someone will always stop to talk... More

I walked by Wednesday with my friend from Santa Cruz. It's been remodeling right now it's not a good idea to go the because you can't walk freely. Wait until is finished

Nice view and several statues and monuments for picture taking, spotted a fisherman bringing in a Swordfish and everyone around started to take pictures to it. Visited on July 21 st, weather was hot to be walking around. Spotted several watering holes to cool off, you'll have a lot of choices, check it out !!!

We walk the malecon every day with our dogs. It's so beautiful, peaceful and it's fun the watch the occasional porpoise that come in the harbor to play.

I enjoyed the malcontent because I went for walks everyday and it was always excellent, particularly at sunset. I took many photos and enjoyed sipping a coconut while sitting there.
