Mazatlan Shore Excursion: City Tour and Cliff Diving Show
Venture away from the Northern tourist zone and visit Old Mazatlan -- a charming, picturesque, typical Mexican downtown. Visit the 19th-century cathedral and its majestic rising towers, and take a stroll in the famous Plaza de Revolucion. The marketplace is located only two blocks away and is a must-see when in Mazatlan. Wander through the different stalls with the locals, and browse for gifts for friends and family. The marketplace has everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to small souvenirs.
Mazatlan is also known for the resting place of the famous opera singer, Angela Peralta. Head over to the Machado Square, a plaza surrounded by picturesque sidewalk cafes and historic buildings, and explore the Angela Peralta Theater. Ironically, the "Nightingale of Mexico" never actually performed at this theater. While she was en route to Mazatlan to perform at the theater, she fell ill to yellow fever on her ship and passed away before she could perform.
Also famous in Mazatlan is the dangerous sport of cliff diving. You'll witness first-hand how these daredevils jump from 45-foot (14-meter) platforms into only five feet (1.5 meters) of water. It’s a show not to be missed when in Mazatlan!

Mix up getting started. 45 minutes delay in getting our driver. Extra time going to the office for 1 visitor to use their credit card to pay for the tour. The tour was very nice. Would have liked more time with the divers. Too much time at the jewelry store but others were buying. Felt rushed because the cruise ship was in port for such a short time. Otherwise very satisfactory. We liked our guide.

This tour was a shore excursion that gave us a great overall perspective of Mazatlan city. We were able to get out of the bus at several locations and enjoy the scenery, including the famous cliff divers. The tour guide was very friendly and patient at every stop and gave historical information while traveling to each stop. I would definitely recommend this tour especially for first-time visitors to Mazatlan.
