“A Great Experience”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This area of Mazatlan in itself is an education. My wife and I don't do tours, we always have a rental car. That way we can go and see what ever we want. We loved the diversity of the area, the architecture, the colors of the homes. At every street, at every turn there is a new adventure. We went places no tour bus will take you. I love to stop along the way and ask for directions (I don't speak much Spanish) - it's a lesson all of it's own. Sometimes we get lost, which is fun, but we always find our way.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We headed down to the plaza for New Year's Eve and it was beautiful. Lovely place to spend time drinking wine in an outdoor cafe.

“An experience”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This Plaza has become the center of Mazatlan's artist scene. Stroll the renovated neighborhood; have a drink at Edgar's bar to experience old Mexico, dine at one of the many excellent restaurants and see a performance at the theater Angela Peralta.
