mazatlan vs. varadero

Can anyone compare Mazatlan to Varadero who's been to both? I'm going to Mazatlan for the first time in February. I've been to Varadero a couple times, but find the nightlife there disappointing. Can anyone tell me in what regards Mazatlan is better and in what regards Varadero is better. Beaches, food, etc. and especially nightlife. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I can't compare the two as I have never heard of 'Veradero'? But your question pretty much answers it's self. "find the nightlife there disappointing". This town has probably well over 100 places to go after dark. From 'Gringo hangouts' to local hangouts, to places with live music, to table danc places, to....... well, you name it, Mazatlan has it.
