This local area allows you to view the bay into the Pacific while shopping for gifts, checking out monuments, and watching cliff divers plunge into rock infested waters. You will definitely want to spend some time here.

Mazatlan has an incredibly long Malecon and it is great for a walk, bike, run, or just chilling out with a Pacifico and watching the world go by. Decent beach along part of it, couple restaurants, and a nice walk between old town and the...More
