What to Eat in Mazatlan

As a seaside town, Mazatlan features seafood, especially shrimp, on many of its menus. Try fish tacos, ceviche and fresh fish cooked in any number of ways. Wander through the historic district to see what food carts or outdoor cafes catch your eye.  

La Costa Marinera is a popular spot in the Golden Zone, known for its coconut shrimp. El Presidio Restaurant, in the historic district, is another well-reviewed spot, both upscale and romantic. Locals also love Claussen Restaurant, located on the waterfront, which is known for its ceviche. If you still can't decide, ask a local for some tips.

As for drinks, Pacífico Beer was launched here, so you'll see lots of it on menus, as well as michelada, a drink composed of beer, tomato juice, lime and spices.
