About Me




A lot of people coming to Mazatlan are incredible lost about what is in here.
Mazatlan its a turistic place, you will find a lot of people that speaks english.

There are 3 main ways to get here:
We have an airport, the bus station, and the Ferry.

Mostly all the people that comes to Mazatlan, stays for just one day and then leave to the ferry heading to La Paz, Baja California. The ferry its close to the downtown, but not too much, you need to take a local bus or walk like 30 minutes.

For those that will stay longer:
You can either visit the beach and relax or; as many couchsurfers use their time for new experiences.

What i recommend?
1- go to the market- its not too big and you can find many things like souvenirs. Close from the market is the church, and the city hall. A few blocks from there its the teather.

2- There is an aquarium. Aquarium its nice: fishes, sharks, rays, octopus, etc. You will be able to see some californian sealions, and even take your picture with them.

3- Just next to the aquarium, there is the "city forest" its free and it has jaguars, deers and local pigs.

4- For more free stuff you can go to the lighthouse, its a beautiful wiew from the top- but you may need good physical condition cause its a lot of stairs- (in addition its close to the ferry)

5- Walk by the beach, Mazatlan its mostly all around the beach- if you walk all in front of the beach you can see mostly what Mazatlan is about, the "malecon" starts at downtown and ends at "golden zone", so you can see the two faces of Mazatlan: downtown (quiet and cultural) and golden zone (party and turistic part).

Note: For me couch surfing its an oportunnity to help someone, and also to be help.
World should be a lot easier if people share.

So This is not a dating webpage so please DONT send me any request if you dont actually need a couch or a guide.

Sometimes I have tons of work and can not immediatly answer so I appreciate if you can write in advance.

Y perdón pero pronto lo pondré en español. Lo puse en mi mal ingles para ahorrarme tiempo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you come in a weekend try this:
*Downtown-"Plazuela Machado" on saturdays they sell a lot of handmade crafts. Then go to "olas altas" there are many bars there, have a drink and enjoy the view.
*If you like to party at Golden Zone there are many places: Frogs (more like local snob bar), Sumbawa (local beach bar) and Oysters (all kind of people), they dance in all this places so if you are not a dancer better try the downtown.

If you are a few we can arrenge a tour at downtown. I can be your guide.


In case i CANT offer a couch, i will try to find a friend that allows you to stay, There are not many hostels, or at least i dont know any. But there are all kind of hotels in Mazatlan, so if you are in a hurry you will find one anyway.


Things to eat:

Try Ceviche and Tacos de Camaron, i personally like "F.I.S.H." at golden zone, next to ricos. But there are plenty places that sell seafood all around Mazatlan.

Close to DownTown there is a place called "Chayito" that sells mexican traditional food; tostadas, enchiladas, try asado.

If you are walking by the beach I will go to "pinitos beach" and have a coconut.

If you go to downtown at "playa sur" they sell this incredible delicious drink called "cocohorchata", i personally love it.

If your are a vegetarian go to: PuraVida (golden zone), Arabian food ( downtown).
