We hadn't been to Mazatlan in many years. So many changes. Nicer restaurants, shops etc. Music. Lots to do.

This is the area full of American tourists, and so the prices in the shops restaurants will be higher than you miight expect. However, the beach is pretty and the views out to the Pacific are amazing!

this is the "tourist" trap area of MZT. Lots of shops, clubs, restaurants and entertainment. Hotel Playa used to have a good band for dancing.

This is area is way too crowded for my liking. Shops are a little higher end all selling beach stuff and tourist junk. Mostly shops and fewer stalls. Nonetheless we found better prices here than in the Old Town. Go figure.

The Golden Zone is a shopping area. I didn't see any RV Parks in Mazatlan,but I also wasn't looking for them. I don't know if they exist.
