Discover Mazatlán, the “Pearl of the Pacific” with absolutely all-inclusive packages from Signature Vacations
Since the early ‘40s Mazatlán in Mexico has captivated North American travellers and film-stars alike —from John Wayne to Gary Cooper, and even Walt Disney. With the promise of incredible fishing, heritage discoveries and beautiful beaches, it’s easy to see why this cultural gem has been dubbed the ‘Pearl of the Pacific.’ Popular with sport fishing enthusiasts, Mazatlan’s Gold Coast attracts a variety of large-game fish from swordfish to marlin and its bustling sea port has one of Mexico’s largest shrimp fleets. Most vacationers are tempted to enjoy at least one seafood lunch here during their trip.
Mazatlán also stands out as a Mecca for dolphin and whale watching at certain times of year.
The city is divided into several sections, the popular and more modern tourist area is known as the Golden Zone and this is where you can find shops, restaurants, and some of the most well-known beaches. Old Mazatlán is a charming area to explore for those looking to experience local history and architecture, especially in the refurbished town square, Plazuela Machado, where you will find neighbourhood cafes and authentic local restaurants, along with the historic Teatro Ángela Peralta Opera House and the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. Mazatlán is also home to a large boardwalk (The Malecón) spanning over 21km this is the perfect place to enjoy an evening stroll and watch the sunset.
