Calle 16 de September is way better than the Malecon for shopping!

Lots of great shops along this street - and if you go up as far as Calle Sedin, there is a great candy store that sells authentic vanilla for 31.5 pesos - we brought back 5!

Our tour bus parked along this street just across from the Sears store as we were able to spend an hour enjoying the scenic beauty of this part of La Paz on 17 Feb 2016. The museum, the gorgeous trees, nice shops, and overall vibe of this area were very nice.

The street runs up from the Malecon and ends at Church Mission. A local coffee shop ) " 5th Avenue" to the left of the church had live music and great coffee. Ibarra's Pottery is a hop skip and a jump away on Republic and Rameriaz.

Nice little area for shops and I believe is where the funky/farmers/crafts market was on Saturday! Nice for a stroll.

nice walk, many local shops and not much to see. Avoid in hot weather. It is better to walk by the Malecon.

This main drag extends inland from the kiosk on the malecon. The stores and kiosks don't sell many handicrafts or the things tourists usually buy. This is where you go if you need everyday items or want to see what the locals re buying. The small department store Perla De La Paz sells comfortable and fashionable locally-made cotton clothing.

If you want to experience a typical Mexican/Baja shopping experience, walk this street as well as the little ones off of it. La Paz is a real place...not a manufactured for tourists town, and these shops exemplify what the locals buy, how they dress, what they eat, etc. It's the... More
