A 1950s beach resort that's all grown up

Mazatlan was a popular destination for travelers for most of the 20th century, thanks to miles and miles of sandy beaches. Today, it's much more than just a beach town. The city was recently revitalized thanks to a restoration of the buildings in the Centro Historico (Old Town), and the area offers great shopping, great food, and great views from the boardwalk. Your Mazatlan vacation rental will provide access to sun, surf, a fabulous aquarium, and a striking lighthouse, all within a stone's throw of the natural wonders of the Sierra Madres.

Beautiful beaches (and everything else) in Mazatlan

Mazatlan has a beach for everyone. Playa Las Gaviotas (Gaviotas Beach) is the hot spot for vacationers, beach vendors, and water sports. Playa Olas Altas is quieter and good for surfing. The Malecon, or boardwalk, backs a beach that's too narrow for sunbathing, but the walkway itself has beautiful views. After all that, there's still so much more to explore in Mazatlan. The historic Old Town is picturesque and full of sights, shopping, and delicious street food. Take a tour or tool around on your own.

Stunning views over the ocean, fishy views under the sea

Book a Mazatlan vacation rental in the south of the city and you'll be near El Faro (The Lighthouse), nearly 500 feet - and a strenuous hike - above sea level. Travelers love to time their visit with the sunset over the Pacific, and if they get tuckered out on the walk, simply enjoy the gorgeous views of the lighthouse that are picture-perfect even from a distance. The Mazatlan Aquarium is a treat for kids and grown-ups. Sea horses, sea lions, macaws, and eels are on display, and diving shows with sharks are thrilling for little ones.

Traveler's choice: winter warmth or summer showers

Mazatlan's tropical climate provides year-round warmth, and it's most popular for vacationers in winter, when average highs are in the upper 70s and there's very little rain. Spring and fall are great times to look for a Mazatlan vacation rental that suits your budget, when the weather is warmer but still lovely. Summer is hot and rainy. Visitors with sturdy raingear and a taste for peace and quiet will be rewarded with lower prices and plenty of opportunities to re-enact a south-of-the-border version of the last scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

It won't be tough to spot a tufted jay near Mazatlan

The city is stretched over 50 miles of Pacific coastline, and no matter where your Mazatlan vacation rental lies, you're likely to see tabachines, eucalyptus, laurels, and poplars. Sea birds abound, and animal lovers will get a glimpse of ducks, herons, and pelicans by air, and whales and dolphins by sea. Travelers interested in a wilder landscape outside the city take excursions into the Sierra Madre mountains to the east, where they can enjoy valley views and spot birds like the chara pinta and tufted jay.
