Mazatlán: The Pearl of the Pacific (VIDEO)


Mazatlán, once famous in the mid-20th century thanks to its 20km of sandy beaches, is re-attracting tourists once again to its historic sites, educational museums, and golden beaches.

However, don’t stay too long at Zona Dorada (Golden Zone) i.e the hotel strip in Mazatlán, because the prices here are ridiculous high. Instead of bleeding your pockets dry, head to Viejo Mazatlán (Old Mazatlán), where things are cheaper, the pace is slower, and the Mexican culture is more vivid.

If you need a break from the beaches, simply head into town and catch a performance at Teatro Ángela Peralta, visit one of the many museums, or enjoy a traditional meal at Plazuel Machado.
