Plaza Machado, Mazatlan
Categories: Historic Walking Areas, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Plaza Machado, in the historic city center, was named after Juan Nepomuceno Machado, a Filipino trader who donated the land in 1837. A popular meeting point, the plaza used to be known as the "Orange Walk" because of the orange trees that surrounded it. Enjoy a coffee in the scenic city square, admire the French and Spanish architecture, and view the central gazebo constructed in 1870. Laidback in the morning and bustling with life at night, the plaza is a great spot for people watching, grabbing a quick snack, or a romantic stroll.

El ambiente nocturno es fabuloso

There are several restaurants with great food options from Mexican, Italian, and seafood. Young locals gather here and offer free shows at night.
A perfect old fashion place to have dinner or have some drinks.
Nice place to relax and enjoy the historic district. Very enjoyable and time of day, but it really picks up in the evening.
Everyone should go there in the evening. Vendors selling their wares, music in the streets, weddings taking place with pictures in the Gazebo. Many good restaurants and go to the Angela Peralta Theatre, always entertaining.
