Lovely area to sty right downtown but my wife would have wanted more shopping opportunities. It was safe and well lit. Restaurants in the area were wonderful. Not specifically a vacation destination though. More of a place where you can settle in for awhile.

This area gives one a good idea of what life was once like in the last century. Although some of the building could use a face lift, many of them have been lovingly looked after.

We went during the Street art festival. Great way to spend an evening wandering through the shops and getting a glimpse of the local artisans. We bought a few small trinkets, but were welcomed into every shop and even invited to taste Tequilla and share some snacks. There is a main square that is lit up with Twinkle lights and... More

This is where the locals go! The Market has everything for you to see, buy, or eat! It's great for the history alone and to see how the locals live!

Cathedral, Square, Shopping market and restaurants. Worth the visit. Mucho see as you walk around. Large market area and many places to eat.

Dirty old town that make foreigners feel unsafe, we even had to put up with El Chapo's gang camped out by the pool in our hotel playing Mexican music and drinking the entire day. It is a cheap quality vacation destination. Never again, even for free we wouldn't go back there.

An odd mix of wonderful architecture and modern fast food buildings. We only drove through and may have missed the specialties

Loved walking the old square with its architecture and Spanish feel. There were some street performers in the square dancing while we sipped on a latte near by. The area is full of "tourist helpers" that are expatriates living in the area and volunteer to help tourist with directions or recommendations.

This was my first trip and well worth taking. It gave me an overview of the City and also introduced me to some of the cultural activities in the area. The church, the diving and the wonderful "birds eye" view of life in Mazatlan on a Sunday night. As a first trip on a short stay I would thoroughly recommend... More
