Best of Mazatlan
Meet your bilingual, professional tour guide at the cruise ship pier and begin your tour of the best of Mazatlan at the top of lookout hill, where you can see the city from an unobstructed aerial perch. As you gaze out at the skyline, keep an eye out for Creston Hill, which houses the tallest lighthouse in Latin America.
Drive through the oldest section of Mazatlan, the Historical Center, and admire the Spanish, French, and German influences that shaped the city's architecture and inception. Arrive at the Old Town Cathedral, where you'll be able to go inside and take pictures. Also, roam freely through the surrounding plaza and bustling central market.
Then pass by the iconic, century-old Pacifico Brewery, the world's first, and drive past the scenic Malecon, or oceanfront avenue. Visit the Golden Zone, which is home to Mazatlan's most popular shopping area.
After some time in the Golden Zone, sit down and enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine at a local restaurant hotspot, where you will also enjoy a famous dancing horse show. On your way back to the pier, make several brief stops along the way to marvel at seaside monuments, feed cawing frigate birds, and watch the cliff divers' show.

Good guide, covered all of the things that made Mazatlan my favorite stop on this cruise.

We chose this tour to include the City, a little shopping, and last but not least, the Cabbalos Bailar! I wish there had been another horse to entertain us, but the two were wonderful! I also wish I had chosen a seat facing the performance area. Oh well! It was very nice, and a good seafood meal too.

Our guide made this excursion the best! He was warm, considerate, funny, and kind! Feeding the Frigate birds with fish was one of my favorite stops! Then we at at Mares and watched a horse dance and at the biggest shrimp I’ve ever had!! Coconut shrimp with pineapple sauce that had a kick! Yum! If you do this tour - I hope you are blessed to have Victor! Thanks Victor. My favorite shore excursion so far because you treated us like family
