Riu to the golden zone is about 5 miles?

Cost for taxi or pulmonia 50-120 pesos depending on your negotiating skills, the taxis or pulmonias called by the bell boys will be in the higher price range, you can walk out to the street & get much better rates since most of the taxis & pulmonias on the roadway have come to that area with fares & are returning to the golden zone without fares.

You can also catch a bus which passes by the entrance of the Riu about every 20 minutes & cost about 10 pesos per person.

Is it safe, that depends on who is posting some will say yes very, others will say not so much.

Downtown or "centro" is a few miles further south and cost about 60-100 pesos depending on your negotiating skills. Mazatlan is as safe as any city of like size in the USA.
