I have visited Mazatlan a few times now and always consider it my second home. This last stay in February, I stayed in an apartment close to Panchos. I had been to Panchos in the past and always remembered it for the friendly staff, great fresh food, and the perfect beach access. One con to Panchos, is that as soon as you walk down the little stairs to the sand you are bombarded with people trying to sell you things which is fine for Mexico, but when it happens every day and every single time you go to the beach it can get quite annoying.
After a night of too many cervezas, Panchos will definitley provide you with the best pick-me-up to rejeuvinate you and prepare you for a day of fun in the sun. I highly reccomend the fruit plate, along with their AMAZING orange juice!!
