I love Mazatlan. It's real Mexico un like so many other beaches where Gringos flock to, it is less than a 2 hour plane ride from Phoenix or LA, it has world class restaurants and cultural attractions. THERE IS NOTHING I DO NOT LIKE!

It is a splendid example of the architecture in Mazatlan and a must see for the visitor to Mazatlan. It is easy to get to and once there the Central Market and various restaurants and shops are in close proximity. For those who like to walk it is about 7 miles from the Cathedral to the Golden Zone by via... More

I wish I'd had our good camera with us when we visited the cathedral. It is so beautiful and the photos I took with my phone don't do it justice. I could easily spend two hours there just looking at the place. The statues are so lifelike. The life sized one of Jesus on the cross almost brought me to... More

We made a quick stop over Easter weekend and peeked inside the church. It was lovely and seemed welcoming :)

It is well worth the visit to see the craftmanship it took to build the Cathedral. There are many statues and other sculptures as well inside. It is only a block or so away from the Pino Suarez Market. You can catch the Centro bus to the Market and visit the Cathedral

Visited the cathedral as part of a City tour. It is a beautiful, unique piece of architecture. Only wish I hadn't forgotten my camera!

As beautiful as it is in the pictures that previous reviewers have submitted. It is only about 2 blocks from the Old Town marketplace. We walked over before heading back to the ship and stopped briefly. We didn't stay long because there was a sign that said "no shorts." I doubt that they enforce it, but we didn't want to... More

We were on a tour of Mazatlán and our first stop was at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Basilica de La Inmaculada Concepcion) located in the old city area. Our guide, Marco took us inside to give us a tour and told us of its history and the significance of the symbols around the church. It was a beautiful... More

On entering the Cathedral, you can't help but be awed by the beauty and size of the interior. Spectacular!
