See all the people around the town market and the good deals. Can be very crowded but it a nice place. As what bus to take to the old market, very cheap and no need to take a taxi.

Every visit over the last 34 years we make a point to go to Old Mazatlan. We love experiencing shopping at the Market, visiting the Cathedral and listening to music in the central park beside it.

Great tour by trolley, depending the hotel you stay at. The guide only spoke in Spanish, not recommended for people who don't speak spanish.

Very picturesque area. Many photo opportunities and lots of shops and restaurants. Part of the city tour we took. We stopped at a silver store and were given a beer or soft drink as we shopped. Prices were good and a great selection of silver.

Very affordable plenty of mini shows. Not just fish. It's more like a mini zoo with mini animal shows. It was perfect for the kids.

There are nice seafood restaurants, good shopping, and homes and buildings that reflect how the city started. One of these beautiful buildings is the Angela Peralta Theatre. This... More
