We cycle down that way from where we stay. There is a great restaurants in the area, as well as great surfing and boogie boarding off the beach there. Easy to get there by Mazatlan's bus system, or take a pulmania ride..

If tourists want to see Mexican families having a wonderful day at the beach, Playa Cerritos is the place to be. The tide was down and many families were taking advantage of the tidal pools to scout for tropical fish, splash and frolic in the water. Local restaurants provide a variety of different foods, so there's something for everyone. Easy... More

You can walk for miles on this golden sand beach. Fewer hotels then other areas so a more calm experience. Waves were great for bobbying or body surfing.

take the Cerritos bus to the end of the line. This will drop you at Playa Cerritos..where you can enjoy some pretty reasonable shopping and excellent food.. The fishing beach at the end of the road reassure you to the freshness of the shrimp in those huge cocktails that are touted. Indulge! They are magnificent.

Great beach but it has been "discovered" as the crowds are starting to come. The beach is wide and the water is warm. I love it!

You can walk for miles along the Playa Cerritos and hardly run into anyone except a few other walkers. There are several hotels & private homes along the route but I guess most of the people are around the pools. The waves are great for boogie boarding. Love it there.

The northern most beach and not as crowded as some closer in. Great seafood for a good (modest) price. Good crabbing and accessible rock formations.
