We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the Mazatlan Ocean Front Inn. Jim and Candace were the most gracious hosts, and we felt completely at home and relaxed in their beautiful bed and breakfast. The views of the malecon and the Pacific Ocean were awesome, especially the sunsets from the deck. The location was great too. We were just a short walk away from the central historic district, and the beautifully restored Plaza Machado. We spent a few nights there, both eating at the fantastic restaurants, or just people watching the great mix of local families and tourists there every night. We were also just a few blocks away from a great spa for massages. Candace and Jim were also able to recommend some very good, inexpensive restaurants on Olas Altas beach. You can't beat the mango shrimp or poblano stuffed chicken at the Cueva Del Leon.
Just a quick word about safety in Mazatlan. We thoroughly enjoy Mexican culture, and try to immerse ourselves amongst the locals as much as possible. We walked into the historic district almost every day, many times walking back at night. We also walked north along the malecon a few miles one night to see a fireworks display; walking with all local families, and never once felt anything less than completely comfortable and safe.
Overall, we had one of our best experiences ever in Mexico, and it wouldn't have been the same without our stay at the Mazatlan Ocean Front Inn. In addition to everything you could expect from the experience of staying at the Inn, Candace and Jim were invaluable as guides of where to go and what to see during our stay. We intend to make a stop at the Inn a part of all of our future trips to Mazatlan.
