Desde Avenida Centenario


Mazatlan is a great city to visit.  We have been there twice and are going again this October.  It's just one of the stops for the Mexican Riviera cruise.  It is a city of antiquity and modern as well.  When we visit we enjoy just getting on a bus and going to the end of the line then back.

There's a great central market that has items that can only be from Mexico.  The carnecerías (meat stalls) are open air and have the whole side of beef hanging there to be butchered. It's also a good place for souvenirs that are out of the ordinary.

It is a seaport so there are plenty of places for mariscos (seafood).  In the center of town there is a plaza that sports a typical church, fine arts theater and several street cafes.  Some of the cafes even offer a 3 for 1 Corona deal.  So you can bet we sat and enjoyed that scenenry Mexican style.

Be prepared to walk and if you're really adventurous take a city bus and ride around.  It's a crowded city but the people are great and really love it when a norteamericano tries to speak their language..

You can go almost any time of the year as it's warm and pleasent.  Have fun in old Mazatlan!
