“Beautiful and peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This stop was part of our City Tour. It is a delightful plaza with lots of trees and walking paths. The plaza is surrounded by many different restaurants in building that have been preserved from the early days of Mazatlan. While we did not have time to go back for dinner or drinks it will be one of the first places we go to next time

“Wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Mix of old and new. Very tranquil. Feels like stepping back into a different, older time. Surrounding buildings are very gracious.

Totally enjoyed our stroll around the plaza, and had a great meal at Beach Burger. Our waiter was hilarious in an understated, wise guy way. Fun evening!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is an absolute must if you visit Mazatlan!
Make sure you go in the evening at eat outside at one of the lovely restaurants there. Listen to all the music surrounding you! Totally romantic! I felt like I was somewhere in Europe.
