Golden zone has it all. You can eat in beach side restaurants, shop at Micheal Gallery or eat in any of several great restaurants.

We took the hop-on, hop-off bus through old Mazatlán and then worked our way to the upper scale motels near the "Golden Zone." Nice shaded area, but not any better than some of the other outdoor shops we visited. Viewed as a good way to see a little more of Mazatlán. Did not make any purchases, but many folks seemed...

Went twice to the golden zone. Not a problem great shopping but don't go on cruise ship days. You will not get any deals.

sadly we didn't read the reviews before our tour bus deposited us at their doorstep--after spending $325 for a platter we later discovered the same item sells for $52 online in the US. our email to their published address requesting a refund of the difference has bounced back--no surprise there--so next step will be a phone call and then, in...

This area is spread out, but I thought the best shopping was the area closest to the ocean. If you take the bus get off at Panamas and walk down toward the ocean, That's where we did most of our shopping.

This is where you go to find your Mexican souvenirs. Most of the shops have the junky souvenirs. There are also jewelry stores and a couple of stores with good items. You will also find a good variety of restaurants, some right on the ocean.
