After a few hours of walking around the gold zone, we just wanted a little snack to hold us over until dinner. We ordered the shrimp tacos and split between two of us. It was perfect. BTW, they would only take cash.

You're in Mazatlán, with great weather and sitting in an open air cantina with a plateful of fresh shrimp and a cool beverage. Exactly what you need on a vacation.
