Christmas in Mazatlan

by lesu222

We are planning to be in Mazatlan at Christmas. Does anyone have suggestions about what a family can do on Christmas Eve? Are most restaurants open? What about Catholic church services? Are there any children's events?
When we were in Mexico City at Christmas, there were many carnival-like booths in the park and many people out with their families and having their pictures taken during the early evening on Christmas Eve.
Does Mazatlan have anything like this? Also, are there posadas or Christmas plays during the week before Christmas? We will have our children and grandchildren with us and would appreciate any information or suggestions.
Thanks so much!

Quite a few resturants are open for both christmas and New Years, try special events at maztravel.com. There is a big Catholic Church downtown, that is were I am going with my family for mass. But also think about getting decorations from the local Walmart, and make your space somthing special for the kids. I don't know about your children, but mine love just poking around downtown there is always somthing going on.

Travel Tips for Mazatlán

Mazatlán Tip

by daBertl

The fondest memory are definitely the Pulmonias as they are unique to Mazatlan. A Pulmonia is a resembled large golf cart made of a modified Volkswagen, which carry tourists around often with blasting raucous music. ou can even rent these vehicles or just enjoy them as a taxi.

Acuario Mazatlan

by Hermanater

We went for a visit to Acuario Mazatlan. I was not sure what to expect. This place was quite small. They had a decent turtle display inside the building. Outside were various paths to follow that pointed out various natural species of plants. This is not Sea World but it was ok for wasting away a couple of hours.

Packing List

by CultusLake

If you have a small bag, you can take it on the plane. Make sure you have a suitcase that is sturdy and with wheels. Don't forget your HAT!! Bring some light runners, as the cobblestone streets are broken and old in places..any form of high heel is impractical, and even sandals if they are flimsy will break. You will do alot of walking in Mazatlan. Be prepared.Be sure to bring a sweat shirt, and some long pants, not all shorts and tops...it was very cold in Feb 2001 and I lived in my sweatshirt at night. There is no heat in the rooms and when it is cold, it is damp too. The pharmacies have almost everything. One thing I did hear on one of the email lists I am on, is that there isn't alot of makeup for lighter skinned people. Bring your own. Also small travel sized hand sanitizer, I used this before every meal, just incase, and never got sick. Travel sized toothpaste and soap are good too. I brought film, but there is lots there.Bring your pics home to get developed. Quality is not that great in Maz, and it is expensive. I brought a foam beach mat...it was great! I rolled my clothes in it on the plane, I wore my clothes in layers....took some off going down as it was hotter..and put on more coming home as it got colder!..and rolled them all in the beach mat! Someone mentioned a paring knife and ziploc bags..good plan!
Join the Mazatlan Info group on Yahoo..an email group with lots of info..it is called MAZINFO..check for it on Yahoo groups. If you are going to stay for an extended period, pack a few of your favourite dishes and cutlery, and useful kitchen items with you, as you can't find alot of things there.

Bruja's for brewskis, and more...

by mexicruiser

At the Cerritos end of the Cerritos/Juarez bus route is a lovely, fairly undeveloped (as of yet!) beach area, Bruja's, with a nice restaurant down one of the side roads, and down another side road are a number of beach palapa restaurants where one can get a nice cold beer for about 15 pesos, roughly $1.30 with a lovely view of the ocean. We haven't eaten at any of these restaurants so we can't vouch for the food, but the brewski's were good!

Update: We have eaten at Bruja's a couple to times now, their breakfast is really good - for less than $5 you get juice, coffee, fruit, eggs and meat.

On Saturday nights they have awesome entertainment! Around 5pm they have dancing horses on the beach, around 6pm there is folk dancing, last night there was a big mariachi band, and finally a guitarist/flautist around 7! Their happy hours are from 5-10pm every night, and the deal is 2 for 1!! For $5 you get 2 margaritas, pina coladas, or mai tai's , etc. And all this while enjoying a gorgeous view of the ocean, beautiful sunsets, etc!!
