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.
