A walk and or lunch on the Malecon is a must do while in La Paz. The scenery is awesome with it ocean, beaches, harbour, restaurants, and many bronze sculptures. The best time is during Carnival in Febuary.

Great place for a stroll and to see the harbour, plenty of restaurants and bars but not too touristy. La Paz is a great taste of the real Mexico

We've been to many piers along the west coast of Mexico, but thoroughly enjoyed the Malecon in La Paz. Extremely relaxing to stroll the path alongside the water. Beautiful art to view and friendly locals made for great walks throughout the day. Especially fun at...More

We only had a couple of hours in La Paz. This is not your typical touristy town with huge resorts. It's smaller with boutique type hotels in town. The area along the ocean is beautiful, with tour boats, statues, and other pieces of art. Might...More

The Malecon is filled with impressive art. It was the destination for Ernest Hemmingway who wrote "The Pearl" and "Old Man and the Sea" that were inspired by La Paz.

After having a big meal, it's a great place to walk off those calories. Many Mexican families walk at 7pm. It starts cooling down. Only the gringo's walk in the heat of the day.

Great place to stroll morning, afternoon or evening to take in sights along the waterfront. Plenty to see and do-- restaurants, shops, music, water activity, etc. Nice place to watch beautiful sunsets too!

All you need in shops, beach, restaurants, seaview and beautiful sculptures. Will get quite lively as night falls. For hairdressers, local shops and manicure, go a street or two back.

Noisy, touristy but very pleasant. The walk along the coast. Is scattered with art, playgrounds, restaurants and bars. More Mexican tourists than Americans. We felt very safe with the federales on patrol.

The Hotel Blue is where we stayed, the room was very reasonable and included breakfast. It was a couple of blocks from the Malecon. If you are looking for a tour operator, I can highly recommend VIP. Enjoy!

Balandra Beach--our favourite--less than half an hour from la Paz by car. Other beeches right in the city, at either end of Malecon.
