“caution is required, but a must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

this is a fantastic old city, with very spanish feel. I call this a must see for even resort tourists, as it helps you to really feel the places you visit. its not dangerous, but it is mexico so so daytime only, and just be aware.... I felt quite safe during the day. the market was great!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Loved the energy and great architecture. Shopping, restaurants, "shrimp ladies". Bought shrimp one day and my girlfriend cooked it in the hotel. It was awesome!

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

When in Mazatlan, a visit to old, central Mazatlan is definitely worth it. The cathedral is pretty and worth seeing. The central market is a blast to go walk around and shop for souvenirs.
