“Old Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

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.

The wonderful restaurants lining the Plaza with friendly waiters beckoning.....the vendors and the music during Carnaval...the electric feeling walking among the crowd...

“Take your camera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was amazed to see all the fresh meats being prepared and all the fruits and vegetables. Did not expect a market like this in Mexico. Take a Pulmania for a scenic ride.

“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.
