Spoil yourself and stay at a luxurious vacation rental in Mazatlan
Mazatlan, on the Mexican Pacific coast, is the second-biggest city in the state of Sinaloa. It boasts 20km of sandy beaches lined by comfortable vacation rentals. By renting a vacation home in Mazatlan, you can easily combine a seaside stay with a city break. Choose from a variety of apartments, condos, and waterfront homes if you want to be close to the ocean.
Sumptuous seafood and meat stews
Mazatlan has abundant fish and seafood due to its location on the Pacific Coast. Make sure to try aguachile, the state’s signature dish, consisting of shrimp marinated in green chilies and served with vegetables, cheese, or bacon. Other delectable dishes include tamales de camaron, a shrimp dish with peas, and pescado ahumado, smoked fish in laurel leaves. If you love soup, order posole, made from hominy, dried kernels of maize, meat, onions, and cabbage. Meat lovers will want to try birria, a stew of beef, goat, or lamb meat.
When it comes to beverages, there’s nothing more refreshing than fresh coconut water. However, you can also sample tepache, a traditional drink from fermented pineapple peel. Other drinks include agua de Jamaica, made from boiled hibiscus flowers mixed with sugar and lime; horchata, prepared using rice, sugar, vanilla, or cinnamon; and agua de cebada, made with barley. After your meal, nibble on Sinaloan coricos, sweet corn cookies.
Fabulous performances and colorful art
There’s more to Mazatlan than sun-drenched beaches and stunning sunsets. Teatro Angela Peralta, a premier performance venue for many national artists, is home to the Delfos Danza Contemporanea, Mexico’s award-winning dance company. Sit in one of the theater's 800 seats – perhaps even in a balcony – to watch a musical, theatrical, or dance performance.
Art lovers should head to Nidart Gallery on the corner of Libertad and Carnaval streets, especially for souvenirs. Paintings, masks, sculptures, and local handicrafts are available in the gallery, and they can also ship your purchases home for you. If you're walking in the historic center, keep your eyes peeled for the amazing and colorful street art. Also, many artists, painters, and sculptors have set up their studios throughout Mazatlan's Old Quarter, giving you the opportunity to chat with like-minded people.
Cool haunts and activities in Mazatlan
Mazatlan's fantastic nightlife is considered among the country's best. Save some energy for after the sun sets, for there are plenty of spots in the city where you can drink, listen to music, and dance the night away. Ranging from laidback watering holes to chic discos, most nightclubs are in the Zona Dorada and La Marina areas. In the northern end of Zona Dorada, you’ll find many sports bars, while the southern part is dotted with restaurants, lounges, and karaoke bars. Watch for special events such as ladies' nights or happy hour.
If you're not fond of clubs, there are several other interesting nighttime options. Buy tickets to a Mariachi show and join in the singing and dancing – the audience is often encouraged to participate. You could also watch a turtle release, which is usually done in the evening. During turtles' nesting period, eggs are collected and brought back to a conservation center to improve their offspring's survival rates. Once hatched, the baby turtles are brought to the sea.
Walk along the city's coastline and visit islands
Head to Plaza Machado, a bustling square surrounded by Spanish and French architecture. Walk around the area and absorb the atmosphere or watch a show in the plaza's gazebo. Don’t miss the Malecon boardwalk, which has stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. One of the world's longest walkways, the 13-mile stretch is perfect for watching the sunset or a bike ride. In the vicinity is the historic town center, where you can admire the remarkable 19th-century Basílica de la Inmaculada Concepción.
A popular half-day excursion is to Isla de la Piedra, southeast of Old Mazatlan. It has a beautiful beach surrounded by coconut groves. Surfers come here to catch the waves, and you can also horseback, fish or just bask on the beach. Also popular are guided excursions to Deer Island, Mazatlan's biggest coastal island. It's home to diverse plant species and over 90 kinds of birds, and perfect for hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and wildlife watching.
