Many variety shops.

Great shopping the down town area is clean and has many food choices. Streets are easy to walk down and you find many shops.

We visited this place last week and were disappointed with how this place has declined. Much of the area is abandoned and boarded up. There is much garbage in the streets and it stinks.

Lots to see and do. A real taste of Mazatlan. Great eating places, fun shopping and walking distance for many attractions. Taxi's are CLOSE by to offer you a ride. Loved the open taxis with the accommodating drivers. Prices is ALWAYS negotiable for a ride. A great way to spend a day or evening.

Try as many restaurants as you can, the food is excellent and reasonable. Our Favorite was Carlos and Lucia (Mexican/Cuban) across from the OLD Holiday Inn.

Many places to eat; ask the locals and the tourists; some are hidden but very good. On the beach, there are food places for fun, romantic dining. Very peaceful. Ponchos

This area is filled with American franchises. If you want to feel like you're in the states, this is the place for you.

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.
