Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, along a pristine stretch of white sand and blue waves known as the Mexican Riviera, lies the charming laid back beach town of Mazatlan. Come to Mazatlan to experience a true beach getaway amid stunning natural beauty and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. This is a great place to make lasting vacation memories, whether you're planning a romantic escape or a getaway with friends. The best way to experience all that Mazatlan has to offer is by booking your own private vacation rental. Find an apartment in the heart of town, or a luxury ocean condo a few steps away from the beach. Wake up in the morning as the sun rises over the ocean and enjoy breakfast on the balcony of your villa, then plan out the day's adventures.
Spend your days exploring the busy side streets and colorful markets of Mazatlan. Go fishing or charter a sailing excursion from the Mazatlan marina. Play a round of golf on a world-class Mazatlan course, go parasailing, or relax in one of many award winning Mazatlan spas. No matter what you have in mind for your vacation, you'll never run out of fun things to do here. At the end of the day, head home to your vacation rental to host a campfire on the beach or a barbeque for your family and friends.
