This is the downtown central square. It is a very nice place to walk around when the sun goes down. There are many local artisans displaying their stuff, artist, and live music. It surrounded by many good restaurants. It is definitely a place where you need to spend an evening.

This place is good to dinner out and listen live music. There are different kind of meals, taxi (pulmomia) service. It is hard to find out a parking spot.

This is a great place to go in the evening, it comes alive. There are many restaurants that open with outside seating with all types of menu choices. There are also many other restaurants within walking distance around the Plaza. They always have activities going on in the plaza, art, music, lots of vendors. You will find lots of vacationers...

This is a very pretty plaza with nice restaurant options, and entertainment in the square. We went there two nights and each night there was entertainment in the square- break dancers, musicians, artisans selling wares.

Beautiful night! Live music on the Plaza and drinks at Pedro and Lola's, after dinner at Casa 46. We love old Mazatlan!

Beautiful little hidden gem, off the beaten path. Beautiful at night trees are lit up with white lights, performers outside dancing, acting and vendors/artisans selling their wares. Live music and performers right in the middle. Dont miss it and visit on friday or saturday night for the best experience!
