Mazatlan and the surrounding area has much to offer the curious traveler. The city features historic Old Mazatlan, filled with period homes and graceful parks. A walk along the malecon will take you to Glorieta del Clavadista, the cliff where divers plunge into the waters far below. To watch them is breathtaking. Offshore, Deer Island can be visited as a day-trip by boat. Pack a picnic and come to play volleyball, relax in the sun, or snorkel in search of turtles and tropical fish. When you tire of city living, head to Aguacaliente, a small village made popular by its hot pools but now famous for the pinatas it produces. Or check in at Hacienda Las Moras, a 150-year-old distillery where you can ride horses, play tennis and even sample the tequila, which is still made here.
