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.

The center of music, outdoor dining, music. Plenty of good eateries. The Pazuela is an attraction at any time of the day.

Mazatlan's downtown is amazing. In this place, you can get dinner at any of its sorrounding restaurants while you see birds, people and trees merging into a nice and enjoyable environment. It has a lot of history (Like Pedro Infante's birth) and is a must if you visit Mazatlan.

Particularly on weekends, shopping on the Machado, listening to fine music, enjoying great food and that magical Mazatlan ambience. Best spots: Pedro y Lola, El Bife, Il Mosto (Black burro steak is fantastic).

Lovely square or plaza with live music on weekends. Architecture is Spanish Colonial. Outdoor cafes and restaurants surround the perimeter. It is difficult to choose which one to dine at. They are all inviting. Venders sell mostly jewelry in the square which on a lovely evening is fun to browse through. you will see some pieces you may not see... More

Cafes and restaurants surround the town plaza with vendors selling their wares in the center. Stroll around at night when the place comes alive with music and revelers.
