“Getting better every year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We returned to Mazatlan and were excited to see what had become of the "centro historico". Many of the buildings are hundreds of years old, built around central courtyards which have been over-run by trees. Efforts at gentrification and renewal are paying off. Start your visit at Plaza Machado and wander, enjoying the sites.

“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

It is very reminiscent of New Orleans. Well maintained, brightly painted buildings on narrow streets. Watch out for the other drivers, very frightening. Our guide was a taxi driver, and we got a very good overview. Well worth looking over.

“Great Shopping Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Everyone wants to sell you something and everyone say they have the best price! You will also find someone who sell it cheaper usually on the last day of your vacation!!! The Cathedral was nice to visit. The Cliff Divers are a must.
