Located in the heart of old Mazatlan, this is a great place to relax. We spent a few hours sitting, relaxing, drinking and watching people.

I love the Machado. A great place to wander, eat and people watch or read a book. Frequent events and often very lively. Great restaurants.

A historical plaza surrounded by many restaurants and vendor tables (mostly jewelry). High energy on Saturday night with a local cover band and dancing in the square.
