Perhaps youve not heard of Mazatlan. Though its the largest port city in western Mexico and a long-time tourist haven, not many Canadians have.

So well let you in on a little secret: if you like fabulous beaches (27 kms of them), fresh seafood, authentic shopping, and the most amazing value around, youre going to love Mazatlan.

Mazatlan (pronounced mah-saht- lahn) is a port city of some 500,000 located on the beautiful Pacific Coast, next to the Sierra Madre Mountains. Its fame came from shipping and fishing, and still today the town is renowned for dishing up some of the freshest shrimp youll ever taste.

Visitors love Mazatlan because it offers the real Mexico: a working town with vast sweeps of golden sand beaches; a bustling and entertaining local market; fun and funky restaurants and bars with old fashioned (read: incredibly cheap) prices.

No wonder travelers with an eye to their budget - including a growing number of Canadians and Americans who choose to retire here love Mazatlan.

Mazatlan is also home to one of Mexicos oldest and largest historical districts, dating from the 1800s. Today, the city provides visitors with a unique journey into a rich culture and history easily experienced during a stroll through Old Mazatlan, the 20 square block historic district. Visit art galleries, museums, and admire the beauty of the restored historic district, the centerpiece of which is the charming theatre, the Teatro Angela Peralta. Keep your camera ready for shots of wrought iron balconies laden with colourful bougainvillea flowers and glimpses into small private courtyards.

Daytime activities include beaching, of course, as well as deepsea fishing, golf on a selection of courses including the 27 holes at the El Cid Resort (called the best golf value in Mexico), surfing, admiring the cliff divers, poking around the large indoor local market, and congratulating yourself that youve chosen Mazatlan for your holiday!

Itll be our little secret.
