Would have loved to spend more time at the Centro to slowly see everything. We walked from there to see the divers and that was a sight to see.

It has the feel of old Mexico and a very colonial look. It will transport you back into a time of greatness.

The el centro marketplace is a great way to experience unique shopping for grocery items and souveniers. Most items are cheaper here than near the beach.

The trip was informative and showed us the town site. I would have preferred more hands on shopping and a little time to enjoy lunch. 45 minute stops were not long enough to do anything. I spent 40 minutes locating a bank machine and 45 minutes just in the jewelry shop.

We visited the old Mazatlan market as part of our trip. We were not prepared for the crowds, bugs and smell of the fresh meat at the market. I guess it is an experience for some but left my wife and I nauscious. EWWW. I'll take a Safeway or Kroeger anyday!
