Casual, lively, and sporting a lifestyle that revolves around the sea, Mazatlan, in the state of Sinaloa, is one of Mexico’s best value-priced resorts.  It’s still a mecca for sportfishers in search of sailfish and marlin at reasonable prices.  But these days, Mazatlan is better known s a world-class beach resort, due to its 17 miles of inviting sandy beaches extending northward from the original old city, complemented by new golf and marina facilities.  Hotels, restaurants, shops, and clubs cozy up to those beaches as this city of 500,000 grows to accommodate its yearly influx of one million visitors.

Mazatlan is also a traditional commercial port city and boasts the largest shrimping fleet in Latin America.  A 20-block historic area called Old Mazatlan dates from the 19th century.  Its seaside walkway (malecon) is the longest in Mexico, at 15 miles, and street musicians are known to play among its borders for tips.  Famous for its annual Carnaval revelry, it’s also got a reputation for playful nightlife.
