Best Things to Do in Mazatlan
If you only have one day in Mazatlán you should take a taxi to Centro Histórico (Old Mazatlán) for some delicious fish tacos, to snap a few photos of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and to stroll by the beautiful statues of the Malecón. But this city truly reveals itself over the course of a few days; then you'll have time for a morning sunset atop El Faro Lighthouse and an evening performance at the Angela Peralta Theatre. One thing to skip: the Museo Arqueológico de Mazatlán; included in many travel guides' top 10 but noticeably absent from the must-do lists of real-life travelers.
