Throw on your tennis shoes and get ready to hike Creston Mountain and take in the city skylines from the mountain top on this epic excursion in Mazatlan. This is the ideal tour for those who enjoy an active and scenic excursion in nature with a cultural experience. Your tour includes four hours of fun starting with a trek up a mountain peak, where you'll view the lighthouse El Faro and catch beautiful views of the city skyline, nearby islands, and more. You'll also get leisure time to explore Mazatlan's Old District, including its art galleries, boutiques, and open-air cafes.

Start your epic mountain climb from the pier to trek up El Creston--a mountain peak located on an island that is connected to Mazatlan via a man-made stretch of land. This mountain is also known as Creston Mountain and has a peak that reaches 515 feet high.

At the top of El Creston, you'll find El Faro--the highest natural lighthouse in the world. This 2.5-story lighthouse was built in 1879 as an improvement to the watchtower on the mountain to serve as a navigational beacon for ships. Today, the lighthouse's beacon can be seen as far away as 30 nautical miles and uses a lightbulb that is as bright as 600,000 lit candles.

Get your camera ready to capture some of the most breathtaking views from atop Creston Mountain, including panoramic views of Mazatlan, the Sierra Madre Mountains, and Stone Island. You'll even catch a glimpse of the beautiful beaches and your Cruise Ship terminal from El Creston's peak. Before ending your tour, you'll get to visit the old district of Mazatlan--one of the Mexican Riviera's most beautiful attractions. It's know for its iconic architecture and a whole host of art galleries, theaters, restaurants, and shops. Navigate the Old District's narrow streets to find handcrafted souvenirs from local artisans, shop the boutiques, or relax at one of the open-air cafes before heading back to your pier.

Whether you love exploring historic landmarks and neighborhoods or you enjoy the great outdoors, this exciting excursion offers the best of both worlds for cultural connoisseurs and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Book this thrilling hiking adventure today and get ready for a cultural experience of Mazatlan and the mountains like none other!

Missed Excursion But Happy Ending
March 11, 2020
Unfortunately the ship was several hours late getting into port so our scheduled hiking excursion had already left before we arrived. However the tour company staff was great- very friendly and helpful. They placed us on a longer/more costly city tour at no expense to us. It was a wonderful experience!

Good day of learning about Mazatlan, seeing the sites from the top of the lighthouse and then in town. Great way to see the town and get a sense of the culture. Guide was great.
