February 13 – 16
We spent four days in La Paz. It is the capital city of Baja California Sur and as far as cities in Baja go, relatively big. It has a lovely malecón that stretches 5.5 km along its waterfront beaches. This wide walkway is dotted with sculptures, places to recreate, and sit and enjoy the view. Restaurants line the street across from the boardwalk packed with tourists. But as you migrate further from the water the city starts to bloom. A bustling business district, a hipster avenue, the historic oldtown, Mexican markets, and art.
There is art everywhere. No matter where we roamed there were beautiful sculptures, architecture, and lots of murals. Lots and lots of murals. Here is just a sampling of what we saw on our walks.

Do you like public art? What is your favorite “artful city?”

Wonderful stuff! I’m surprised by how few people I see in the photos. Perhaps it’s not a particularly busy time for travel.
There was less people on the weekdays and many of these pictures were taken off the beaten path. There really is art everywhere in La Paz.
Thanks John! Glad you enjoyed it!
Wow! Beautiful! I never knew there was so much art there. Joe and I want so badly to go to Baja, but alas, it has to wait until next year. Thanks for sharing
Gracias y de nada! There is art all over Mexico but La Paz seemed to have a bit extra. The murals are all amazing. We are back in La Paz now and as we were driving in I saw even more art!
So very colorful!!
Yes, one of the things I love about Mexico is all the colors!
