Lovely plaza in the heart of the older section. Great choice of restaurants and lively local culture. Many of the restaurants have live music in the evening.

We park at the corner of Carnaval and Constitucion and walk through the Plaza at night to get the atmosphere and culture of Mazatlan. We have dinner at Gaia and walk past the Angel Peralta Theater to listen to the music and singing of students taking lessons, to the first corner street Ice Cream Shop; our favourite.

This is the happening place on the weekends especially for entertainment galore and plenty of restaurants. I highly recommend Casa 46 restaurant which overlooks the plaza. Top notch gourmet food. Amazing!

Plaza Machado was within walking distance from our AirBnB. We walked there every day at different times and it's charm never waivered. We tried several of the restaurants and were never disappointed. In the day you could spend a quiet morning or afternoon sitting in the shade watching people strolling with their dogs and children playing. Strolling musicians or dancers will entertain you. The evenings are magical. The restaurants have bands playing and lovely lighted areas that give it a magical feel. On weekends there are vendors galore selling jewelry, clothing, trinkets, and much more. street entertainers travel the plaza with their talents. Sit inside or out depending on you pleasure and the weather. The plaza is just such a pleasant place to be any time of day.

We we went to walk around this town and visit a few of the sites. We found the main theatre closed even though it was supposed to be open. And the museum was permanently cerrado. The displays outside were smashed, which pretty much summed up Mexico at this point, the roads, the campgrounds, everything is broken senor!

We loved this plaza both during the day and at night. On weekends there is wonderful music, jazz, Mexican rock, guitar surrounded by wonderful restaurants and lots of lights and street vendors--very festive.
