Food scene

So close and cheap and yet high quality, great taste for authentic "street style" tacos. You can sit and enjoy them at the restaurant or have them delivered here. You pay $18 pesos for 2 pastor tacos (marinated pork), they also have asada tacos (bifteck) and many other choices. I hope you like them as much as I do.

A favorite seafood in Olas Altas and good price, lot of choices in the menu and you enjoy the food with drinks and an amazing ocean view.

At a walking distance, El Muchacho Alegre is a very famous and traditional place to visit while in Mazatlan, a place to mix with the locals and enjoy their Party style while having a beer and taste good food, right on the beach (malecon). The place is very famous for its Banda Music, so typical of Mazatlan, but it can get loud if you're not familiar with it.

For special occasions (a bit more pricey) there are 2 restaurants that I like very much, El Presidio (beautiful place in Historic Center) and Charros Fuego y Parrilla (the best grill for me).

This is my all favorite restaurant, just a little outside Mazatlan, if you plan ahead, you can drive there (rentals are found in Mazatlan Golden Zone) and enjoy the iconic town of El Quelite, and eat at El Meson de los Laureanos, the trip is worth it. It doesn't get more mexican than that, there are free chickens walking around the tables, the food taste like heaven and prices are so affordable.

Great spot to eat right on the beach, I love their seafood, specially Ceviche Loco but they have a good menu. Although service can take some time, especially if big groups arrive, you can just have a drink and relax, enjoying their amazing ocean view. They have done a very good job re-building the place after the last tropical storm caused major damage.

Drinks and fun

A place for Drinks, this is a well hidden gem in Centro Historico, great cocktails and music from different times and for all tastes, great for an outdoor evening.

Nightclub, locals just love these two places for a night out, La Consentida and Cotorritos. Beer, tequila and many drinks, the funny thing is they're located in the same plaza, so you can visit both the same night.

Los Osuna, a distillery that offers very affordable tours that include a sample of their products. You can also buy liquor on the spot. The place is beautiful, their products are really good and very nice people.

Sightseeing

Beautiful secluded beach with tons of petroglyphs. Very unique archeological site. One would expect these petroglyphs to be in a museum, instead they are in the exact same place they have been for 1000s of years. A guide takes you out to visit the site and you also can see archeologists tediously cleaning and sorting artifacts in a structure nearby.
