La Paz city life revolves around the town's coastal promenade that lines Paseo Álvaro Obregón. Much of the city's dining and nightlife is here. The promenade stretches for several kilometers past sandy beaches. Strollers, vendors, fisherman, and the city's friendly residents make the malecón a lively spot for people watching and taking in the beautiful sunset over the bay.
The seaside Parque de la Amistad (Park of Friendship) with benches and a two story kiosk, faces one of the several piers that extend into Bahía de La Paz.
We live about 1-1/2 hours drive south of La Paz, and as often happens, I have just taken it for granted as far as logging it onto my VT pages. Since I spent the weekend there to attend a baby shower for a friend's daughter, I went around to a few places for info and photos.
Even though it is currently not the tourist season, the city was quite bustling Saturday evening, with lots of events and of course cruising up and down the MALECON! Seemed very festive! Lots of businesses were renovating in preparation for the return of the Gringos.
A good website to get a quick overview of the things to do (snorkling, diving, trips to nearby island, fishing, nearby towns, etc.) is MEXONLINE: http://www.mexonline.com/baja/lapaz-activities.htm
