Every year for the past 30 plus years, our group has traveled to Mexico. For the first twenty years we went to Mazatlan. Then for several years we went to PV, Puerto Penasco or Loreto. For the past three years we have returned to Mazatlan....More

I love Panchos! The location is wonderful. The food is fabulous. And the service is always stupendous. I don't drink alcohol but it seems that everybody enjoys their alcoholic beverages here.

I really like Poncho's on the beach. The best reviews are going to come from those who had a ringside seat over the water, which we did. Also, the review will be better than those coming from the people here in "season" (spring break). We...More

Yes. Would be a great place to spend a couple of hours. Catch a pulmonia (taxi that looks like an open air golf cart), which you will only find in Mazatlan. Make sure you negotiate the price before you get in. Should be... More
