This is one place that you should not miss on a visit to Mazatlan. The open market is an experience, if you have never been to one before. Meat, vegetables, clothes, candies, and souvenirs all in one big place! Take your time and see everything! The people are friendly and the market is pretty cool!

Great place to walk around, stop in and have a drink or meal. So much to see. Much history. Do it during the monthly art tour.

Anyone visiting Mazatlan should be sure to take in the Old Mazatlan. The cathedral is beautiful, the open market is an experience that offers tons of shopping options and yes, you can barter for better pricing. Several restaurants around the Machado that are very good.

I just returned from one of my favorite places, Mazatlan,MX.The beach is fabulous, wonderful food and people, but we never visit here without seeing the old city. Much of it is fully renovated and attracts all locals and tourists. It's one of the most alive old town sections I have seen in a long time. Having just returned this weekend,... More

Great guide called Mario very knowledgeable of area. Usual thing of stopping at certain stores but a good tripod you like history and architecture

Old Town has so many restaurants and art galleries. It's an amazing place to stroll around and find hidden treasures. Some of the most upscale and healthy restaurants are located here. I love that there people who help you with information in the square.

The market place is absolutely a must to see. You will find everything that you might want to buy here and much cheaper than from a beach vender. However, go in the morning as the smells of the meats, seafood, and food cooking become very strong in the afternoon. The Cathedral is located just a block from the market place.... More

Go here for dinner. Restaurants pull tables outside for dinner and the atmosphere is fun. Street performers and lots of local color.

we took a bus tour, prebooked and paid for through sunwing airlines. It was $30, and was supposed to be 3 hrs., ended up being 5 hours with no lunch stop. We went to the market, to the church which was definitely worth seeing, and walked along the streets. If you walk on any of the streets, even outside the... More
