Playa Brujas was my favorite of all beaches in Mazatlan. It's at the very end of Mazatlan and not crowded. Mostly local kids. There are a few reastaurants around if you get hungry or bring your own picnic. Nice waves too!

Do not miss this attraction in Mazatlan! We never do in the past 10 years and have been going to Mazatlan since 1992. Great food, beautiful panorami view. Safe, clean, great drinks! What else is there!

Slightly out of the way at the far north end of New Mazatlan, but worth the extra effort to get there. We started eating there several years ago when it was a scary place to eat. The food was good, but the cleanliness of the place was questionable and sand and dirt was everywhere. Year by year the place has... More

Always a great restaurant for both locals and travelers. Authentic Mexican and Seafood. Owner/Manager is almost always present ensuring good service. Best value for seafood in the Mazatlan area.

The ambiance of this place was great, open air, waterfront, live band, good service ... but the food is terrible. Shrimp were overcooked in 2 out of 3 different dishes and steak was tough. Won't be back

Less crowded. Great food , enchanted like stepping into a time machine and going back fifty years. A great place to spend an afternoon. This entire point is an exceptional location. From this point you can face the Pacific ocean, turn 180 degrees and walk in a straight line to the Pacific ocean.
