Mazatlan, Mexico

Mazatlan

Mazatlan, with its time-honoured Mexican culture and a very Spanish influence, is considered to be very traditional. Known as the Pearl of the Pacific, Mazatlan is recognized for top-notch sailfish and marlin fishing, traditional architecture and lively culture. Beautiful colonial architecture in the historic centre of ‘Old Mazatlan' includes The Cathedral of Immaculate Conception and streets with 19th-century buildings.

Walk along the promenade on balmy evenings, feast on freshly caught seafood or laze on golden beaches to the sound of crashing waves. Gleaming new resorts and hotels are in the Zona Dorada - The Golden Zone - on the northern extremity of Mazatlan. Older, more established businesses and services are in Old Mazatlan. Buildings there are quaint and well-maintained – the area hasn't built up as much of the same commercial or modern outlets as other Mexican resorts.

Shopping is fun at Mercado Pino Suarez, the most traditional of markets on Benito Suarez Street. Look for arts & crafts, wickerwork, wood sculptures, saddlery, masks and ceramics. Also, shopping in the Zona Dorada gives travellers the opportunity to look for traditional clothes, jewellery, artwork and souvenirs.

Mazatlan's gorgeous beaches are surrounded by impressive cliffs, lush vegetation and beautiful clear waters that are easily accessible to tourists. Some locations are better than others for great swimming, surfing or parasailing – waves vary from place to place. Beach choices such as Playa Norte, Playa Gaviotas and Playa Venados offer rentals for power boats, sailboats, canoes, kayaks, Sunfish, Hobie Cats, inflatable rafts and inner tubes.

Las Tres Islas, an island and ecological zone three km west of Mazatlan, has exciting excursions and rock climbing. The eco-tourism sites of  El Cerro del Creston and Rancho el Venado near Mazatlan offer hiking trials, 30 animal species and guided treks.

Visitors who enjoy pop or electronic music and dancing until the wee hours of the morning will have loads of fun in a variety nightclubs that are always hopping. Discotheques are located in Mazatlan's Zona Dorada area, mostly on Avenida Camaron Sabalo.
