When you fly to General Rafael Buelna Airport (MZT) you can expect great ground transportation - the airport is serviced by shuttle buses that take people to their accommodation, and many resorts provide complimentary shuttles for guests.
The airport itself lies just south of the city center and it is possible to rent a car or take a taxi as alternative transportation.
Mazatlan is nicknamed the Pearl of the Pacific for a few very good reasons. The beautiful expanses of sand and turquoise water are enticing, and there are lots of activities on offer to suit every taste.
With adventures such as surfing, fishing, golfing, and cliff diving, or simpler pleasures like tanning on the beach, shopping or strolling along the town s majestic boardwalk, visitors will be spoilt for choice in this Mexican paradise.
Weather is hot most of the time, and February is the busiest month as tourist flock to Mazatlan for the town s annual festival.
The city is made up of two main areas, the first of which, Zona Dorada, which translates as the Golden Zone, is where most resorts and hotels are. Here, tourists can choose to relax on the beach, or chill out by the pool in the hotel.
Meanwhile, the old city, or as it s known in Spanish, Centro Historico, combines the region s rich colonial history with a mass of restaurants, bars and cafes and stores as well as galleries displaying and selling local arts and crafts.
