Additional Location Information
Mazatlan is unique among Mexican vacation destinations. While places such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas were built specifically for the tourist industry, Mazatlan is a beautiful old colonial town with over 500 years cultural heritage. It is a real working seaport with the largest shrimp-fishing fleet and the largest marina in Mexico. While it has beautiful tourist areas, large marinas and four huge golf courses, it is not a “Disney built” Mexico. It has many many miles of pristine beaches, something not found in most of the other tourist areas of Mexico. There are more miles of beach than any other city in South America with the exception of Rio de Janeiro. The city has many old traditions built around the people and is also host to the third largest Carnival in the world, second only to Rio and New Orleans. It is definitely the “Pearl of the Pacific”. Temperatures here range from the mid 60's to the mid 90's.
There are all the features of a resort town. There is water sports, boating, surfing. We have some of the best golf courses in Mexico. But our pride is deep sea fishing. For those looking for a trophy fish such blue or striped marlin, sail fish, yellow fin tuna or mahi mahi, mostly known here as Dorado, (for it beautiful, bright golden colors), Mazatlán is one of the best places in the world for this activity. It's an exciting adventure that begins at sunrise when boats head for blue waters—some times only six miles out, others as far as 30, where there is a chance to find these fish, resting, feeding or jumping. Using trolling lures, dead bait and live bait, these boats cover a great area trying to find fish. The marine radios are all on and everyone pays attention to the live updates of what is going on where, keeping track of each other's position by using distance and bearing with GPS devices.
There is a rebirth in Mazatlan, prompted by the president of the Centro Histórico Project. The return of those artists, actors, foodies and fashionistas to old Mazatlán didn't happen by accident. The neighborhood's rebirth as an urban cultural district is the product of years of work by a small but committed cadre of advocates. It is a rebirth rooted in ideas of urbanism and smart growth. Today, in Mazatlán's Centro Histórico the old mingles with the new on every block of this nearly 200-year-old downtown, where a mix of multigenerational families and recent transplants from around the world amplify the neighborhood's cosmopolitan air. The Centro Histórico isthe resurrected arts district and architectural marvel of the city. There are galleries, sidewalk cafes, artists, musicians, designers, foodies.Around the plaza are the broad porches and tall ceilings of neo-Classical homes, freshly repainted in tropical colors and restored to an approximation of their previous grandeur. Across the plaza a few hours earlier, the layered rhythms of música folklórica erupt from the city's Municipal Arts Center. There is a certain lilting tropical mood. Days begin and end at the plazuela, where the ocean often smells so close as to be at your feet. There are extended breakfasts; unhurried walks along the malecón; raw oysters at thatched-roofed beach restaurants; a sunset beers on roofs, late dinners of fresh seafood and competing rhythms. When the air cools the easy pace gives way to a feverish night life. The energy of Centro Histórico's scene is unbelievable against the backdrop of the architecture of two centuries past.
