The Plaza turns magical at night. Love the cafes with tables spilling out over the sidewalk. Our absolute favorite restaurant, a very short walk from Plaza Machado on Constitucion, is Topolo. Ask for bilingual entertaining waiter Carlos!

The old town is adjacent to the plaza and the cathedral. You'll appreciate the old town feel and the architecture.

We fell in love with Mazatlan - even purchased a time share (after 20 years of saying no everywhere else we went) at Inn At Mazatlan. Great central location - easy Uber or Pulmonia ride to El Centro or a lovely long walk down the Malecon. Lots of great restaurants around - including Life En Espagnol

What an interesting place to visit! You can purchase anything at the market place....everything from a slab of beef to a t-shirt. Lots of souvenir places and the price is low.

This is the 'real' Mazatlan. It is a delight to wander the streets and piazzas with convenient benches to pause (in the shade). Good restaurants. This is where the locals live!

This is a double shot at old Mazatlan,as we took the Segway tour that is offered by the Baikas shop by the Belmar hotel. The culture small shops off the side streets and don't be afraid to poke your head in they are actual shops who enjoy your visits and have stuff not seen by the typical vendorees on the... More
