This must have been one of my favorite attractions in Mazatlan. We visited Plaza Machado during the day time as part of a city tour. The tour guide told us that at night they close the streets and have music, dancing and street vendors. We decided to return and night and we loved it. The atmosphere was perfect with live music and people dancing in the street. I wanted to eat at Pedro and Lola but my group decided to eat at Beach Burger. This was the only bad thing. The food was terrible. The shrimp tasted like it must have been dipped in ketchup. Other than that I loved Plaza Machado.
