“Most scenic place in Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is the most charming place in Old Mazatlan - right where the Angela Peralta Theater is. It is charming when empty (e.g. for breakfast), and when packed with locals and tourist alike at night time (I was there both Friday and Saturday nights and there were bands in the Kiosk, crafts, lots of restaurants and alive with people).

“A good night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

A great place to eat and relax at night. Recommed a weekend night as they have local artists selling jewlery and other items at very reasonable prices.

“A must see when in Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Plaza Machado is one of the most scenic areas of the city. No visit to this lovely city would be complete without strolling around the Plaza. On weekend nights there is even live music and people dancing in the street. The restaurants around the Plaza all serve delicious meals. Don't forget to stop here for a fun, relaxing time.

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Friday nights are so magical there with all the lights, restaurants, families, and many local vendors selling their wares. During the day there are several places to have lunch and I also enjoyed breakfast there a couple of mornings.

“Dinner on the Plaza”

We have gone to the theater & dinner on the plaza for many years. The food and the people are really friendly and sincere.
