Overview

This is a very much overlooked and little known acheological site on the coast of the Sea of Cortez about 30 miles north of the city of Mazatlan. This site contains some of the best preserved Indian rock carvings in Mexico. The site has recently undergone substantial improvement courtesy of the government of Sinaloa and is now very user friendly and easy to access. It lies about 3 miles off the international highway on the coast and has an information center and well laid out paths to the carvings. It also is situated next to a marvelous beach for those inclined to sunbath or simply enjoy the waters. A google search on "Las Labradas Sinaloa" will provide additional information in both English and Spanish. This site is growing in popularity is is the location for a yearly spring equinox celebration that is also becoming increasingly popular.

Located north of Mazatlan is a group of rocks along a beach with many carvings. This basalt flow, which came from inland, sticks out as an unusual formation along the coast. Approximately 1500 years ago the locals carved many pictures into the rocks. The quality...More

I'd visited this place before and forgotten just what great place this is. Wear good footwear and take your time on the slippery rocks. Black rocks make some grest photo moments so make sure your smart phone or camera is fully charged.

No places that I had seen that were nearby. I know one of the workers at the labradas had a family restaurant close by, I believe they may know more on hotels or places to stay.
