  • Great as a meeting point. Nice relaxed place to chill and watch the sunset, it's located in downtown and right next to the sea.
  • El malecón de La Paz es un buen lugar para caminar y disfrutar de una bebida refrescante, aunque más vale hacerlo por la tarde ya que el calor es insoportable durante el día.
  • Great place to take photos & get some exercise. This area seems to be the social center of La Paz. Lots of families & locals to interact with.
  • Nice place, lots of locals get together to exercise after the sun is down.
  • Georgeous little kiosk at beach front of La Paz, Baja Sur
