If you’re looking to experience the real Mazatlan, we highly recommend Jeff’s house in Centro Historico. Situated on Calle Pedregoso, the house is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. With two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a well equipped kitchen, UV filtered water system, and onsite laundry facilities, living in “Maz” becomes easy.
Eduardo, the house manager, is excellent; very helpful, tending to any issues that arise very quickly and without fail.
The biggest plus for this house is its location; everything one could want is within an easy 15 minute walk. You can enjoy the Plazuela Machado with its restaurants and the Angela Peralta Theatre (seven minutes), the beach at Olas Altas and the malecon (five minutes), and the main shopping market, Mercardo Pino Suarez (15 minutes). For places farther afield the bus system is inexpensive and easy to use.
Music abounds in Historico and particularly at the Machado. Whether it’s jazz at Bohemia on Tuesdays, or bands in the bandshell on weekend evenings, a person can always find some entertainment. For us, nothing beats an evening cocktail at Tramoya watching the world go by - the perfect end to the day.
All in all, we can’t say enough good things about Jeff’s house, its location, and Mazatlan. We’ll be back.
