“Very interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is a must see > once. Took the bus to the downtown area and ventured into the Central Market. If you don't like markets which have fresh meats - pigs heads, cow tongues etc, and all parts from the chicken then don't venture here. Lots of shops to buy shirts, hats, and local items though.

“Mazatlan, Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The city was easy and safe to travel in by foot or vehicle. The sights were amazing. The people were warm and friendly. We accidentally arrived during Carnival. Two million people arrived when we were there and it wasn't crowded. Martina Acevedo and I went to minister to her family and were extremely blessed!!!! I love the people with the gorgeous "chocolate eyes"

“Old Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you venture down into old Mazatlan you'll get a real feel of old Mexico. The place is fairly safe and there is the large city market there that has a lot of stores selling everthing you can imagine. It's worth seeing.

“Enchanting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Love the old world charm of Mazatlan and delighted to meet so many warm and friendly locals. We were impressed with how much has been renovated since our last trip.
