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.

Custom made leather items at a steal. Many items of lace, iron wood carvings and souvenirs to bring home including rum.

definitely walkable and the restaurants are pretty good. Make sure you get to see the Old Mazatlan square. Just be aware when walking down some of the side streets. They seem questionable but we did not have any problems

Lots to see. A good variety of shops and eateries. Just watch your step as the sidewalks aren't consistent. The artwalk Fridays are the best.

I've been going to Mazatlan since 1981… now, when I go, I almost NEVER enter "the gold Zone"..the tourist area north, which is fine if you want Carlos & Charlie's, Blockbuster, and Burger King. the restaurants and night life in Old Mazatlan are great, the architecture and restaurants are the best. Fine hotels, from $25 to $250. if you need... More
