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.

We really love the service and the atmosphere at Playa Bruja. Unfortunately at least my fried shrimp was overdone and dry. My wife had the Shrimp El Diablo and it was delicious! Just the right amount of spice and very tasty with rice and vegetables. We were pleased that they had a full bar from which to order drinks and... More

Traditionally the first place we dine at upon arriving in Mazatlan. From the outside it appears to be an unremarkable small restaurant but once you enter that all changes into a stunning ocean front landscape. Service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. There's live entertainment, usually a solo artist. The food is very good and I recommend the... More

Beautiful sandy beach on the north end of Av Camaron Sabalo, just north of the RIU hotel. Saw more locals her than tourists.

I found this the most attractive spot in Mazatlán with it's expansive white sand beach, surfers and horse riders and because it is at the end of beach strip it seemed quieter. In the evening the view of lights along the Malecon is unforgettable and so is Mr Lionso's restaurant which I recommend for great food in Mexican setting and... More

At first glance, Playa Bruja seems like just another tourist stop with t-shirts and cheap souvenirs. But go around the corner from the outdoor mall area, 1-2 blocks past the RV park, and sit down for a cold cerveza at Lionosos. This outdoor lunch and dinner spot is the real deal. They serve shrimp a million different ways along with... More
