“The north end of town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

A trip to cerritos is well worth the 10 peso bus ride. It is a haul out there and a good chance to see that part of Mazatlan. At the end of the ride is a strip mall with lots of small souvenir shops. Do stop in one of the rather dowdy restaurants for an ice cold coconut. First drink the water and then ask the lady to cut it open and enjoy the coconut meat. I always ask for a medium coconut. That way the meat is not old and dry. Also, the shrimp coctails are super.

“Surf's Up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This beach is well frequented by surfers. Great views to the South.

Lots of eating spots to choose from in the area. We liked Roy's for steak night. Reserve your rib eye on Tuesday for dining on Thursday night.

Little shops and service vendors to meet your vacation needs. Hair salon, spa, etc.

“Worth the bus ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

There are a few stores, vendors and restaurants here. We found it was cheaper here for little gifts. We always come here so we can go to the Last Drop and we always order the same thing. Pizza. It's thin crust and awesome. Take a ride, it's worth it.

“Fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Playa Cerritos is a good 15 min walk from the Riu resort which I stayed at. So my friend and I would walk here to excercise off all the food we had at the resort. This place has a cool coffee shop and souvenier stores. If you walk to the end of the block youll find fisherman bringing their fresh pick of the day. I had some fresh oysters here...amazingly fresh. Cant wait to go back!
