We've been going here for years....our favorite place for Sunday brunch! Great breakfast followed by a walk on the beautiful clean beach. The worst thing about Sunday morning is the Time Share folks take over the restaurant. They don't bother us, but the restaurant is busier trying to fill their orders. So relax, enjoy the view, & they'll get too... More

Playa Cerritos is an overlooked gem... more of a locals beach, it's definitely NOT your nice sandy resort beach! Easy to get to from the Golden zone, take a Cerritos bus north past the marina, or a pulmonia, and enjoy a nice morning or afternoon. The tourist area is right beside an RV park, featuring US and Canadian expats, depending... More

We happened on this hidden place. A little market (we have such a deal for you today!), small cantinas, a Mexican band, and a lovely bay. And cats. Lots of cats.

Great selection of restaurants all along the beautiful shores of Mazatlan. Take in the wide variety of activities on the beaches or just sit back and enjoy the relaxed life in Maz.

A trip to cerritos is well worth the 10 peso bus ride. It is a haul out there and a good chance to see that part of Mazatlan. At the end of the ride is a strip mall with lots of small souvenir shops. Do stop in one of the rather dowdy restaurants for an ice cold coconut. First drink... More

This beach is well frequented by surfers. Great views to the South. Lots of eating spots to choose from in the area. We liked Roy's for steak night. Reserve your rib eye on Tuesday for dining on Thursday night. Little shops and service vendors to meet your vacation needs. Hair salon, spa, etc.
