Enjoy a walk through the Old Mazatlan... flower market, watch the butchers at work , identify the fruits and vegetables on the stalls, try not to buy too many bits and pieces. Then enjoy lunch or coffee at a sidewalk restaurant. Perfect day!

Always enjoy seeing new sites and people in this area. Good for walking and discovering unique niche shops! Narrow and colorful historic streets that get better each year. Great bus service from the hotel district in Golden Zone. Great at night.

This is not yet a tourist area. There is a nice square. For being over 400 years old there are very few historical buildings.
