“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Totally enjoyed our stroll around the plaza, and had a great meal at Beach Burger. Our waiter was hilarious in an understated, wise guy way. Fun evening!

This is an absolute must if you visit Mazatlan!
Make sure you go in the evening at eat outside at one of the lovely restaurants there. Listen to all the music surrounding you! Totally romantic! I felt like I was somewhere in Europe.

“Performances are award winning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We will go see any performance offered during our time in Mazatlan. The acoustics are amazing and prices more than reasonable for any performance! We don't speak fluent Spanish and yet can follow each performance!

“for dinner in mazatlan, a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

get a table outside, any of the restaurants will do. this is a must-see in mazatlan. food ranges from mexican to american, and there are occasionally shows, but it's just good for people-watching.
