We love this place! We surf here every year and love it. There's a great mix of waves to play on and something to entertain all levels of surfers. Go see Roberto at Surf Mazatlan. He's the BEST!

This was steps away from our resort (Riu Emerald Bay) - great place to visit for souveniers, lunch & sightseeing.

The beach is really nice. There are vendors if you want some cheap stuff. Nice walk up the beach every day.

Cerritos/Playa Brujas is just a short bus ride north. Any bus with Cerritos on the front will get you there. Lots of great little restaurants and retail stalls at Cerritos. Walk down the road that turns left at the "dry" fountain and you'll come to...More

Take a Cerritos-bound bus to the end of the road. Many shops in a strip building. Many truly stick-built restaurants and shops. Great beach. Protected by rocks to the west, creating a cove. Beautiful water. Around 2-3PM, families come to the beach and set up...More

The restaurant is near the stony point. When there I am reminded of the Cliff restaurant just south of Puerta Vallarta. The stony point added some rustic attraction while dining on the edge of the porch overlooking the beach and stony clusters and waves swirling...More

Others in our party said the coconut shrimp is the best in Mazatlan. All the food was good. The service was excellent. And tasting the flavored tequilas was a blast!
