Time of year
Many restaurants surrounding the square along with entertainment. All restaurants are excellent with great food. One of our most popular places to go to when in Mazatlan.
Wonderful downtown square anchored at one end by the Angela Peralta Theater and surrounded by restaurants of all kinds. On weekends, there is music and vendor booths. Great fun!
Spent a couple of afternoon/evenings. Ate dinner at Pedro y Lola’s. Wonderful ambience with many historic buildings and great people watching. Always make trip to Plaza Machado whenever we visit MZT.
Nice quiet spot in the centre of town to take a break and watch the locals. Lovely gardens and plants and a good picture spot.
A nice busy square with outdoor restaurants. The atmosphere is busy and was done up for carnaval. The streets just off the plaza were littered with carts selling masks, street foods and more for carnaval It's a must see just for the people watching.
