Mazatlan Vacation Packages & Travel Packages
Warm and beachy Mazatlán is just a hair's breadth south of the Tropic of Cancer. Come soak up some coastal rays, stroll the long malecón (boardwalk) and taste the city's revived cultural offerings. From kitschy souvenir stores to cosmopolitan galleries, Mazatlán is at once touristy and beguiling.
As well as being a prime resort area, Mazatlán is Mexico's principal Pacific coast port for fishing and trade. It's famous for sport fishing, with thousands of sailfish and marlin tagged and released each year, and is home to Latin America's largest fleet of commercial shrimp vessels.
