Mazatlan Mexico Tourist Guide and vacation information 2016-2017Mazatlán Travel Guide
Your best recommended 2016-2017 Mazatlán info resource

The faces of MazatlanWhether you are looking for the best vacation sightseeing; reviews of recommended restaurants; top rated bars, resorts and hotels; popular Mazatlan day trips and tours; looking for maps; visiting for sportfishing; shopping for groceries or shopping for real estate -- let us guide you to the most complete and inclusive Mazatlan tourist information available online.

Discover Mazatlán!

Malecon Cliff DiverThe foundation of Mazatlan's popularity with travelers and tourists for over 70 years is based upon the blessings of geography.

Our city is located on the Pacific Ocean at the lush western edge of the Sierra Madre mountains, and its latitude -- virtually identical to that of Kauai Island in Hawaii -- marks the start of the Mexican Tropics.

Latitude 23° makes Mazatlan both the perfect year-round seaside Mexico beach destination and the ideal travel portal to day trip explorations of the rustic communities and Pueblo Magico of Rural Sinaloa, south along Mexico's lush Pacific coast, and inland to Durango.

A vacation destination since the 1940s

Plaza Machado Centro HistoricoSince the 1940s Mazatlan has been a top rated vacation and retirement destination for countless Canadians, Americans, Europeans and Mexicans who have found in its sophisticated yet laid back atmosphere why Maz is called The Pearl of The Pacific.

Travel to our city engages all of the senses: the beautiful sights and sightseeing; the great music, concerts and the sounds of some of the best theater in Mexico; the feel of soft sea breezes; the smell of the ocean and, of course, the exquisite flavors of our cuisine -- particularly our seafood, which is unsurpassed anywhere in Mexico -- that mixes an increasingly diverse selection of world and fusion restaurants, cafés and bistros.

A Historic Colonial City on The Beach

Cerritos beachThe best Mazatlan beaches -- and their majestic waves -- draw visitors from around the world.

But Mazatlan is far more than just pretty beaches, and international tourists long-ago let their experienced travel instincts guide them to the unique combination of beach vacation entertainment and cultural activities that Mazatlan offers.

These international travelers visit annually to play on the beaches of Nuevo Mazatlan and Golden Zone hotels -- knowing that just minutes distant in the Centro Historico they can enjoy sophisticated art galleries, delicious gourmet restaurants and modern shops that sell handmade artisan crafts and Sinaloa art.

The Centro Historico Renaissance

Basilica Centro HistoricoThe Centro Historico perfectly encapsulates the Mazatlan Renaissance.

Within a fantastic maze of of cobbled streets and hauntingly beautiful post-colonial 1800s buildings that is home to our magnificent Basilica, an ever-increasing number of entrepreneurs and homeowners have restored grand historic structures and have created businesses that reflect this New Mazatlan sensibility.

These popular new restaurants, bars, cafés, art galleries and artists studios express the sensibilities of the countries of origin of their owners -- which is often not Mexico -- and that reflect a true international fusion of culture and artistic taste.

Mazatlan is a historic Mexican city with a magnificent post-colonial 1800s central district and deep traditions that is directly adjacent to a spectacular Malecon -- miles of wonderful beaches -- and the fruits of the infusion of foreign ideas and international sophistication.

The combination of the old and the new; the sacred and the sensual; quintessentially Mexican culture and the contributions from cultures of residents hailing from countries all over the globe has created something truly unique.

Great things to do on a Mazatlán vacation
