Hi lori b, I am sure you will get some helpful info on where to stay , things to do and places to eat on this forum.

We stayed at the Riu Emerald Bay and had a fantastic vacation. The food, staff, and area is wonderful. Nice stretch of beach area to walk.

The Golden Zone is approximately 15 minutes by bus, taxi or pulmonia. All very safe. The Riu Emerald Bay is located north of Mazatlan.

Read all of the reports on the forum. A lot of advise. Maz. is not the place to do AI unless you don't want to leave your hotel. There is so much to discover in Maz. you should leave your motel and find what is out there.. Fishing is availaable all over the place: pick your choice. Almost any place will cook your meal for you. Maz. is a place to fall ion love with---I hope you do.

Deep-sea fishing can be iffy at best this time of year and you may want to consider some bottom-fishing. Less expensive and you have a better chance of catching dinner. The report below is updated weekly and will give you a good idea as to what they are catching.

we always go AI but adventure off our resort alot to eat and just plain adventure. I like the security of having everything paid just in case you lose your money or something happens. but it will not hinder our sight seeing and travel at all. thanks for your help!
