“Plaza Machado is an excellent place to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The whole area should be a "Must visit" while in Mazatlan. There is something for everyone. Lots of excellent traditional restaurants,a bandstand with live music,scenery,little shops&gardens and it includes the Angela Theatre.There are garden areas to visit and small arts and crafts for sale.

“All you need for a wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Different choices for dining and music; the artistic atmosphere begins early in the afternoon and continues at night. Some days you'll catch a performance of the students at Angela Peralta's Art and Dance School or some days you'll find all kinds of kraft like artesanal jewerly, clothing and paintings. Al night sitting at your restaurant of choice you'll enjoy either a salsa band, a trovador or even classic rock. Definetly one of my favorite sites in my town

“Trip to Mazatlan wouldn't be complete without going to the Machado.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is the place to go in the evening to enjoy a dinner at any of the surrounding restaurants at the Plaza Machado. It's where the locals stroll as do many of the expatriates that live in Mazatlan. On Thurs. - Sun. there are many vendors that sell handmade items for you to purchase and bring back with you as a remembrance from your trip. Often you'll find music at various places on the Machado as well. Great food, great people watching, great music, great purchases. All in one place.
