Ok, we are not fans of Mazatlan. Its a very loud busy city with lots and lots of traffic. We chose this place because my daughter found a killer deal and we decided to make the best of it. There is a pretty drive you can take along the coast line through the city. We were able to enjoy that when we went from the Golden District to Old Town Mazatlan. Old Town was a really fun day. There are some amazing buildings there and if you walk a ways there is a huge market in which you can buy and trinket, clothing and food you would like. A few too many pig heads for me, but it was fun and interesting none the less.
The Golden District is a bunch of shops that sell the same stuff over and over again. Our resort was just on the edge of the Golden District. We went shopping through there one day and did have an enjoyable time.
The one nice thing about our resort is that even though there is a lot going on in Mazatlan it is really quite where we were. It’s like we were on our own private island. That really helped make it an enjoyable time. But all that to say I don’t know that we will be running back there. If we found another killer deal like we found this time, then maybe, but I would like to try something new. I really want to go to Zihuatanejo, Mexico. This town is the complete opposite of Mazatlan. Its a quiet, quaint fishing village. So you will need to watch for that review.
