Malecon, La Paz

4.6
Stroll along the ornate pebbled pavement of Malecon, accompanied by picturesque ocean views. Lush palms tower above the boardwalk, as street performers entertain locals and tourists alike. Peruse artisan vendors selling paintings and observe the many intriguing sculptures along the waterfront. Keep an eye on the beach to see enormous sand castles created by master builders, or surfers hanging ten before heading out into the swell. You can discover plenty of shops and restaurants as you walk. See Malecon and all La Paz has to offer by arranging your trip with our La Paz trip builder website .

  • 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

Where to stay in La Paz

The historical center offers some surprisingly budget-friendly options, with many small hotels and pensions clustered around the cathedral and the city beach. For something more luxurious, look about 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, where you can find a few beach resorts offering swimming pools and exclusive restaurants.
