Welcome to Mazatlan, Mexico...

Cruise Ship Visitors:

Suggestions for enjoying your short visit to Mazatlan...
We know you are in our fair city for a limited amount of time. Here are some ways to enjoy your visit and still be able to make it back to the ship before it leaves the dock! Since "cruise ship days" are very busy in Mazatlan, we strongly encourage you to pre-book the optional excursion of your choice. Many of these tours are limited in the number of participants they can accommodate.

King David's Jungle Cruise
Enjoy a boat ride into the tropical jungle to view wildlife and nature at its best. Includes a great lunch. Feed the pelicans from your boat on the ride back.
Hire your own Driver/Guide
Rent an air-conditioned van or suburban with a bilingual guide to show you the sights. Great for custom-made city tours.
Ride at Playa Bruja with Ginger's Bilingual Horses
Enjoy a one-hour ride along the secluded Playa Bruja beach on the north end of Mazatlan. There's plenty of time for lunch at the palapa restaurant nearby.
Let's Go Fishing!
4-hour deep-sea fishing adventure. Fish for Marlin and other game fish at the sport-fishing capital of the world.
Scooter Rental
Enjoy Mazatlan "up close" and personal by renting a scooter by the hour. Helmets are furnished and the company will deliver the scooters to the cruise ship dock area to meet your ship upon arrival.  
Stone Island Half Day Tour
Includes your boat transfer to Stone Island where you'll enjoy a variety of beach and surf activities. All equipment is included. Tasty lunch and open bar for 3-4 hours. Get crazy!
Mike's Gentle Horses
Includes round trip transfers from your hotel or from the cruise ship to Stone Island for a wonderful ride through palm trees and along the beach. Includes a soft drink or beer. 
Beach Time
Want to catch some rays? Take your choice of miles and miles of beautiful Mazatlan beaches. The closest beach to the cruise ship is Olas Altas, within walking distance of the docks. Farther north is Playa Norte. Or take a Sabalo-Centro bus to the beaches in the Golden Zone. Enjoy lunch under a palapa on the beach.
Visit the main market in Centro or take a Sabalo-Centro bus to the Golden Zone and walk and shop to your heart's content. A highly recommended gift shop in the Olas Altas area that gives you a great variety of souvenirs, silver and Mexican hand-made art crafts is Casa Antigua.
Take a taxi, pulmonia or the Playa Sur bus to the foot of the hike to "El Faro," the second highest natural lighthouse in the world. The views are incredible. Be sure to take a bottle of water and your camera.
