OLD MAZATLAN, has all you need, food drink shopping so much fun, as you can set your own amount most times. very warm and good. Great story tellers. good all around time. The carts you ride in all open air, so good to cool down.

Old Mazatlan gives a different perspective from Golden Zone. It has been let to run down so loses a lot of appeal.

Architecture is per se enough reason to go. This place is calm during the evenings, vibrant at night. The main square, Plaza Machado is full of bars and nice bohemian music or local bands playing jazz or blues or else. Do visit.

iIf you want a laid back atmosphere in a historic old city, this is the place to go. The shops are quaint and the history is so interesting. Take a pulmonia or walk down the malecon to get there and you'll experience Matazlan at its finest. There are amazing restaurants where you can sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle... More

We have really enjoyed exploring Centro Mazatlan and especially Plaza Machado, during the evening hours and the weekend are best time to visit. There are quite a few fabulous restaurants, one of our favorites being Pedro & Lola's, but there are more. We caught a great theatrical dance ensemble there one week night by the local students from the school... More

"El Centro" has one of the most interesting public markets in Mexico. Silver, leather goods, beautiful fruits & vegetables, & of course pig heads & piles of chickens. Be brave & try some of the authentic foods cooked & served in the market. Then the beautiful cathedral, the schoolgirls in their cute plaid uniforms, you may even wander into a... More

I liked all that we saw and the tour guide was very knowledgeable but she was very long winded and we were forced to stand in the sun while she covered the entire history of a church we visited.
