You must visit Plaza Machado during your trip to Mazatlan. Part of the oldest areas in the city very well maintained, safe and good to walk around. So just go there relax and enjoy Mazatlan!

The Plaza Machado is in Centro Historico and is about a 30 minutes north along the coastal road, the Malecon. A nice taxi or pulmonea ride - but to far to walk.
