  • Walk along this Boardwalk was of the most beautiful, a very nice and quiet place. I loved the peace would come back with pleasure.

  • The Malecon to La Paz is the ideal place for a sunset stroll among the beautiful colors of the sky and the liveliness of the town which comes alive at night. On the opposite side a host of quaint cafes to eat or just spend the night.

  • It is a pleasure to walk, run, skate, or ride your bike in one of the most beautiful and clean jetties that I've met, free of garbage and odors... Enjoy a beautiful evening watching the sunset... Take time to explore this... And take a good picture...

  • 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.
  • Small, aircon, has some staff who can speak English to help you out. Bus terminal is here
  • 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
