the very best of Mazatlan

I would recommend anyone visiting Mazatlan to see this plaza in the center of historic old town. It's old world charm and lined with good restaurants.

Great shopping bizarre area, the hustle bustle is great energy. We found the pricing to be OK after you negotiate a bit, but we also found prices to be just as good and even better at out lying shops around town, most are willing to dicker down some.

We were told it was too early (between lunch and dinner) so the place was dead. There was nothing within easy walking distance so we spent 20 mins walking around and took... More

This plaza comes alive at night. You can spot many visitors and locals who have flocked to this location to enjoy the food, dancing, music and artisans work. the restaurants and coffee shops offer the most delicious food and delicacies.

Excellent old square, worth the visit , specially if you have never been to a colonial city in Mexico, so you know what it is like. Donated by a Philipino business man who used to have a trading business between Mexico and the far east.
