We visited the old Mazatlan market as part of our trip. We were not prepared for the crowds, bugs and smell of the fresh meat at the market. I guess it is an experience for some but left my wife and I nauscious. EWWW. I'll take a Safeway or Kroeger anyday!

We wandered round the bustling market but then just enjoyed exploring the quieter streets away from that on foot. A waiter at a café suggested we visit a historic house overlooking the plaza and we enjoyed it very much. The cathedral was closed, sadly.

Definitely visit Old Mazatlan - great historic sites and fun Mercado. Hire a pulmonia to show you around; many of the drivers are also tour guides & like to make the trips fun!

We enjoyed the history and all the old buildings, especially the old hotel. We went by the market but did not stop. We felt very safe in the area.
