Mazatlan

4.2

Pacific Pearl

Fine beaches remain a top reason to take a trip to Mazatlan, a developed resort city with a high concentration of hotels and restaurants. Popular with retirees from Canada and Europe, this socially diverse city also draws a large number of immigrants with its thriving tourism and fishing industries. While the outlying suburbs remain the domain of mostly middle-class locals, foreign tourists concentrate their Mazatlan holidays on the historical city center, home to pleasant plazas and many renovated examples of 18th-century architecture. Less expansive than Puerto Vallarta, the town serves as a good getaway option for active vacationers interested in parasailing during the day, and club hopping by night. Mazatlan is in Sinaloa. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Mexico fast, fun, and easy.

Where to stay in Mazatlan

Mazatlan's accommodations cluster around the old town, making the most of the city's trademark blend of French Baroque architecture and sea views. Here you can find everything from ritzy beach resorts to affordable youth hostels. Head slightly farther north along the city's famous promenade for a range of high-end options in the neighborhoods of El Dorado and El Cid, with the latter offering proximity to the city's bustling marina.
