Plazuela Machado During the Day - Mazatlan


Daytime and night time one must visit the Plazuela Machado.

This is the heart of the Centro Historico and the city. It feels like Europe.

In the early 1990s, several citizens, with the help of state funding, renovated the Angela Peralta Theater within Old Mazatlan, spurring a renaissance of the historical city center.




During the day you can see restored shops and houses that take you back to the 1840s.


Inside Casa Etnika. We bought t-shirts here.






There are several bed and breakfasts in the area.


Art galleries abound. On the first Friday of each month you can attend Art Walk.




There are several historic hotels that are worth dropping into.

The Jonathon address.



Another historic hotel is the area. Who are those people in my photo LOL?





Lobby of the Freeman Hotel the first high rise in Mazatlan built in 1944 with 12 floors 



 A view of the cathedral from the top of the Freeman (Best Western) Hotel.




You can even have your blood pressure taken by students providing a public service and collecting funds for their school.



Just  a sampling of the colourful buildings in the area.






The prettiest street in town is Calle Angel Flores.






 Bridal parties love to come here for photo shoots.


Not all the restaurants are open for lunch but there are several.



At night the street is closed to cars and the restaurants fill the space with tables.
Around the square
