Welcome to Mazatlán!

This Visitor’s Guide will help you get the most out of Mexico's "Pearl of the Pacific." While sensible caution is always recommended, relax and enjoy the experience! You'll find the "Mazatlecos" very friendly and helpful.

Be sure to enjoy a stroll along the Malecón. This beachside boulevard extends approximately 17 kilometers (10 miles) and is the longest such ocean walkway in Mexico. Mazatlán boasts the second highest lighthouse in the world (El Faro) and the third largest Mardi Gras or "Carnaval" in the world, after Rio and New Orleans. Enjoy!
