Sunset on the Malecon

Sunset on the Malecón | La Paz, Mexico

On our last evening in Mexico we walked along the La Paz Malecón before dinner. It’s a 5 kilometer boardwalk along the beach and the center of activity in La Paz. We showed up about an hour before the sun went down, and there were tons of children and families walking up and down the beach, enjoying warm summer night.

It’s a pretty darn good spot to watch the sun set.

I took this one out the window of a moving vehicle on our way to dinner.

The next day I flew back to LA, and I watched the sun set again from the plane.

I could not get over how fiery red the sky over LA was immediately after the sun set!

Here are three of the restaurants we ate at in La Paz, just in case you find yourself there and need some recommendations.

La Barcaccia – How Mexico does Italian. The shrimp risotto. Yes.
