Because most of what you'll need and want in town is on the malecón, or a few blocks inland, it's easy to get around La Paz on foot. Public buses go to some of the beaches north of town, but to explore the many beaches within 81km (50 miles) of La Paz, your best bet is to rent a car or hire a taxi. Several car-rental agencies have offices on the malecón.
