The city's architecture is beautiful. I saw the historic Catholic church, which is beautiful as well. There is also a big market place to go shopping. The beach is full of pelicans. I went during Carnival, which is pretty wild. I didn't go to the Carnival party because I didn't want to pay for it. I saw plenty outside the... More

You can get maps for the walking tour, recommend you start early in the day or go in the evening. More shops and restaurant's are open in the evening and cooler is the key. If you hit it the right time of year Friday art walk is great and everyone is out.

In addition to lots of food and bars they often have festivals on the plaza. Old town is my favorite.

the old Mazatlan is a nice place where you can found Pinitos beach, and the famous Clavadista (a group of persons who use to do a kind of show and jump from an elevated zone to the sea)

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
