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.

Fine hotels, from $25 to $250. if you need... More

We might have enjoyed this more if our kids were older and it was not a scorching hot and humid day in July. The area is nice to walk through and some of the buildings are pretty neat. As another reviewer pointed out there are areas that are better maintained than others and you do need to watch where you... More

After 13 years, I can still remember the feeling I had when I first step off the Carnival Cruise Ship back in 2001! What a freakin' experience; I witnessed the natives in their natural environment cooking and selling products to us-tourists and I actually swam in blue waters...

Don't miss Copa de Leche for a 1940's feel of Mexico, the downtown central market and the Catholic cathedral.
