Fly from Los Angeles to Mazatlan

If you're already in sunny Los Angeles, you may wonder why you should fly from Los Angeles to Mazatlan. For one, Mazatlan offers even more sun, plus beach weather that lasts not a few months but all year round. Visit for the friendly people, historic landmarks, zip-lining opportunities and great seafood, to name just a few more reasons. Start by traveling to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) via automobile, shuttle bus, taxi, shared van or public transportation. A two-and-a-half-hour flight later, your Mazatlan adventure can begin.

Attractions

The most iconic Mazatlan attraction is the Malecon, a 13-mile walkway along which you can eat, shop, drink, exercise, people-watch and enjoy ocean views and lovely sunsets. Take a break from the surf, sand and water sports and visit the plazas, churches and shops of Old Mazatlan, the historic center of the city. The landmark Angela Peralta Theater is located in this neighborhood, and the entire area boasts beautiful architecture.

Hints and tips

Regular taxis are a good way to get from Mazatlan airport (MZT) into the city. Once there, get around town via the popular open-air taxis known as pulmonias. Mazatlan enjoys year-round 70-, 80- and-90 degree temperatures. A great time to fly from Los Angeles to Mazatlan is February for the 100-year-old tradition of Carnaval, a celebration featuring parades, live music, street entertainment and fireworks.
