    Hi, I am booked for the end of May at this awesome-looking resort. Having never been to Mazatlan, I am wondering about the food choices. I like the idea of the All-Inclusive package and I know I will get my money's worth however I also like to sample local foods wherever I travel. What is the best option? I don't like the idea of being forced to eat food on the premises the entire week. Are there a lot of other eateries in the area? Thank you and can't wait to check in!!
