According to many, Mazatlán isn't just about delicious food and scenic seaside vistas, but culture, too. Case in point: the Angela Peralta Theater, located in Old Mazatlán's Plaza Machado. It was named after a Mexican opera singer who died in a yellow fever epidemic that swept through the city in 1883. City residents are very proud of their 19th-century opera house, which was restored in the 1980s to host live performances. Visit now and it'll be hard to believe that this grand building was once abandoned, dilapidated and nearly torn down. 

Try to catch a show if you can, which is a highlight experience according to recent travelers. For more information and schedules, visit the official website.

Some of Mazatlán's most beloved sights (such as the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception) are centered in Old Mazatlán. You won't need to make a special effort to enjoy this part of town, but you can rest assured that you'll spend plenty of time there. And if you only have one day in the area, this is where travelers suggest you come. 

You should come hungry. You'll have plenty of food options from restaurants to a market where you can buy produce and tamales to taco stands. Walk off your meal with a tour of the Teatro Angela Peralta opera house or a stroll along the Malecón.
