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.

Seeing the old downtown area and the historical sites makes the trip to Mazatlan meaningful. Don't miss the city market, The cathedral and the park. One good way to see it is by going to the Art show which is held the first Friday from November through May. Ask the hotel staff for location. Once downtown there will be plenty... More

I love old plazas in Mexico but was disappointed in the one in Old Town. Now we were there during the day so maybe it's better at night. We tried to find it Friday night but walked for an hour without finding it.

I was overwhelmed leaving the square the night of may 8 after the flaminko show. I know I'd probably won't be back and it was an experience that I will cherish the rest of my life. Nothing like it in sacramento. The square was about family, culture, little booths locals selling their goods.
