    Looking from afar it feels like Miami. The beautiful coastline and modern buildings being built year round. Our cruise ship stopped here and we decided that this was the place. Lots of restaurants, bars, sculptures, etc are up and down the avenue. Enjoy!

    The beach is very pretty and peaceful. The sand is soft and there aren't any seashells. The restaurants are good but make sure you keep track of how much you're eating/drinking because it can get expensive. The water was nice and it wasn't too crowded. I like that there aren't any hotels along the beach because it makes it feel more secluded and quiet.

    My only suggestion is do NOT get a massage here. My family all got massages and the 2 ladies were very rough. They used a hammer tool directly on my spine and hit my boyfriend’s elbow with it. I was about to cry it hurt so bad!! The lady knew she was hurting me because I kept moving away from her and clinching the table. They also popped our necks and backs. We woke up this morning and we are all in severe pain! The beach is great but do NOT get a massage from here because it will feel like torture.

    Every step is a new discovery. Every corner leads to what feels like a new, yet very historic neighbourhood. The dips, hills, sharp drops, old streets and businesses, as well as schools, churches, steps and pathways are welcoming, and, at times, can be challenging.

    This is a beautiful cathedral just a few blocks from the Plaza Machado. It is located in the Plaza Principal which is also lovely. The cathedral is open and the inside is more beautiful than the outside. This is a must see. The plaza across the street is filled with people walking, eating ice cream, and enjoying Mazatlan's beautiful weather. There is a line of shoe shine chairs along the side overlooking the cathedral with benches to sit and relax.

    Marina was very nice and staff and catamaran was great. Deer Island was a bit of a disappointment. Washroom facilities - disgusting. Food so so. Views great, lovely beach. Activities well run - banana boat, kayaks, snorkeling.

    We stayed at the Riu Emerald Bay so we spent time on Playa Brujas. I would recommend grabbing a boogie board or renting a surf board. The waves are great! No seaweed on the beach and it is very big so not crowded at all. Lots of vendors around too.

    Stopped in Golden Zone to do a bit of shopping and looking around. Lots of construction going on. Walked through a hotel to the beach and there are amazing views of bay, beach and islands.

    Looks like it would be a nice place to stay and there is a lot to do and lots of places to eat and shop.

    Fun to walk and watch people and see such beautiful scenery. So many things to see that every time is a different picture of Mazatlan.

    The bus terminal in Mazatlan is small but clean. I took the ETN bus line from Mazatlan to Durango. The bus was first quality with wide seats and clean bathrooms. The new highway is amazing! I learned that in the past it took 12 hours to get from Mazatlan to Druango but with this new road it only takes 4.5 to 5 hours. A good amount of tunnels were needed to go across instead of around the mountains but the Baluarte Bridge just takes your breath away, standing 400 meters above the Baluarte river, and surrounded by all of the Sierra Madre muntains.

    There are many beaches in Mazatlan that are loud with vendors hawking items at you so that it is challenging to relax. In Cerritos, there is a totally different vibe. You can read a book, write in a journal, chat with a friend, and the atmosphere is very chill and uncrowded. Love this place!
