The plaza was a beautiful place to visit. We loved the blue shirted volunteers that would help you to find your way around. We ate lunch at the plaza and it was delicious with a great atmosphere. Loved the old buildings and history of the place.

We loved it. The architecture was beyond amazing. The area was very clean & the park was decorated up for Christmas. Would have been amazing to see at night.

Plaza Machado has lots of really great restaurants to eat at including Mr. Lionso's which used to only be in the Bruja and Pedro & Lola's. Mr. Lionso's food has always been awesome at the Bruja and was just the same at this location. Also just sitting in the courtyard and people watching is a lot of fun. There is... More

Plaza Machado is a great place to have dinner in the evening. The streets are closed off and filled instead with restaurants' tables and chairs. There are any number of those to chose from and the atmosphere is delightful with people wandering round and live music in the background.

Don't miss this experience especially evenings and weekends. The square has many tables set up where you can browse and by hand made jewelry and crafts.

We enjoyed going late afternoon as the restaurants were beginning to set up for the evening festivities. We walked the area locating many of the old historic buildings & reviewing our print outs of the & whys & wherefores of their past.. Then had a relaxing dinner before heading back to the hotel.

Simply charming. Many restaurants in the evening. Interesting vendors and great music. If you are visiting Mazatlan a visit to Plaza Machado is mandatory.

This is a great place to eat, watch people, listen to music and meet vendors. It is especially hopping with life on weekend nights. You never know what kind of talent you are going to experience. The Plaza is ringed by several restaurants with outdoor seating.
