There are much better restaurants in La Paz than along the Malecon, but it's a great place for a stroll along the beach. It's rare in a Mexican tourist area to be able to walk without hustlers bothering you trying to sell time-shares or junky souvenirs.

The male on in La Paz is just beautiful. So many shops, so much to see, so many statues. The sunsets are just amazing and there is so much activity on the water. A great place to while away the hours.

Beautiful drive on malecon. Great for bicycling and walking. La Paz is a beautiful small city where you can find the real pace of the laid back mexican life style.

Shouldn't be missed if you have the opportunity. A great Mexican experience without the Cabo tourist schtick.

any time of day this is a great place to walk, people watch and enjoy the breeze off the water. So many shops and restaurants for food, drinks or ice cream

Must do in La Paz is a walk along the malecón. Lovely breeze and great places to stop along the way.

You never were in La Paz if you didn walked down the malecon or at least got into a car to drive from start to end multiple times drinking a beer while enjoying the views of your sorroundings. Period.

Lots of beautiful sculptures to see and has a section for a bike lane. This walk is long and has lots of places to get a drink and take a seat at a pier or bench. The carnival was here when I visited so a bit messy but they did try to get it cleaned daily. Nice safe vibe with... More
