Begin your guided tour of Mazatlan at the Continuity of Life Monument, a magnificent sculpture and fountain that always draws a crowd. As you take in the majesty of the monument, walk along the nearby oceanfront boardwalk while your guide shares all the information there is to know about the south end of the city.

You'll be able to stop and watch the daring cliff divers perform their stunt, a 45-foot plummet into a mere eight feet of water with sharp, protruding rocks down below. Then make your way to "Devil's Cave" and inland to the oldest part of town. The Spanish, French and German influence on the old town's architecture and culture is something to behold.

Once you leave the old town, you'll feel as though you're time traveling, as modern Mazatlan is just blocks away. You'll stop by the iconic 19th century Cathedral in Mazatlan, which sports heaven-scratching towers and yellow-tiled domes. Inside, baroque altars, murals adorned in gold, crystal chandeliers and a Parisian organ.

Finally, visit the bustling downtown market, where you'll be able to shop and watch locals go about their daily lives. Throughout the market, there are also several souvenir shops to commemorate your time in Mazatlan.

I really enjoyed this walking tour. We had a tour guide and a driver to ourselves. The guide, Irene, was excellent. She was very personable, and she took us wherever we wanted. My kids liked food, so she took us to a locally known bakery. She was very knowledgeable and answered many of our questions. She also helped us take some awesome family pictures. It was worth having her with us just so someone could take our pictures! But we also learned many things about the city of Mazatlan and life in Mazatlan.
