About Mazatlan, Mexico

Mexico's largest Pacific ocean port, Mazatlan has been called the "Pearl of the Pacific" for its splendid beaches and island-strewn harbor. The resorts of the Zona Dorada ("Golden Zone") deserve their fame, as does the sport-fishing which is known the world over, yet somehow the city maintains much of the simplicity and peace of its fishing village past.

Again, took the public bus to the end of the line and back and passed by all the rich resorts. Go to the church (especially on a Saturday) and you might get to attend a wedding like we did. Culturally interesting downtown area. Fun to be in the old section. People are friendly and nice.

Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus is best value by far. Guide Alicia is worth waiting for. Goo English speaker. Cliff divers at third and final stop were exciting. Shrimp Shack at the second stop was a great lunch, with drinks and generous tip only $30 for two

Not a whole lot to do here. I would go directly to the water and have lunch by the ocean. There is a neat public pool oceanside! We found a rooftop bar with a pool & an incredible view of Mazatlan (Best Western Posada Freeman)!

Take the Pulmonia which are cars that look like golf carts. Should cost you about $20 an hour. They wil take you to all the scenic and tourist spots. (And wherever else you tell them). And do go to Mercado Pino Suarez for you souvenirs.

If you are interested in the beach at Stone Island, take the water taxi that is several blocks from the ship. From a port on Cruise Critic boards: When you depart the ship, you can walk past the taxi area and out through the gate to the main street. Then you turn left and walk a few blocks until you come to a park on the left. Just past that park, but before you get to the ferry port, there is a trail to the left that goes down to the water taxi landing. It's not easy to see from the street, but there are usually some cars parked there from locals who took the water taxi. At the water's edge there is a ticket booth from where you can purchase the water taxi ticket for $1 a person. After crossing the bay, you go to the right and you'll see the beach. It's a great beach with deep sand and good surf and restaurants, bars and everything else you could want for very good prices. They have great food, $1 beer, beach chairs, umbrellas, boat rides, etc
