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 night when the families come out, plays and celebrations are enacted and street vendors serve...

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 want to have paceo for shopping here. Not many souvenir stores from what we saw.

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 Malecon is used by everyone. It has many restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors and gift stores along it. Stop for a drink and someone you have met before will stop and say hi. Very friendly place.

This malecon goes on forever overlooking the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez. Very clean and lovely sculptures along the way.

A must if you are in La Paz, livelier at night, safe place for a walk or ride, as you can rent bicycles for next to nothing.
