“Outdoor walking area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This was an outdoor area where some restaurants and bars are located. Not much happening as we were there in the early afternoon.

“Beautiful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a beautiful plaza. We were there only during the day time. There were hardly any people in the plaza. It was like a park. The air was clean and fresh, no automobile pollution. But we thought it would be bigger than it actually was so we are giving it 3 stars instead of 4 or 5.

“One of our favorite spots for people watching and relaxing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We ate twice at Vivaldi on the corner. Other times just sat on the park bench and watched the people (and dogs) go by. Felt very European.

“Get on the Green Bus Sabado Centro and it takes you Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Get on Sabado Centro bus cost is 10 pesos less than a dollar to get to the Plaza Machado. You name it this place has it from food, clothes, handmade items, etc. When you go to Mazatlan you have to go here to say you were here. The bus will say Machado so you know you are there or just tell bus driver when you get on you want to know when you arrive to this place. Additionally, when you get ready to go back to your hotel or resort you go straight through the Machado from where the bus let you off and on the otherside of the Machado you come out on another street where you catch the Sabado Centro back to your place. Enjoy as a lot to see around this place.
