... San Blass, Mexico and they set us up with an affordable
house rental there. A tropical storm was moving through the area of Mazatlan
and we were soaked. Not fun! So we decided to head south and rent the house for
a day or 2 to get a break from the heat and rain.
After, the house rental we are going to Sayulita(near Puerta

... that evening but the night saw a lot of action. Funny, the room had two beds, I got one, the kiwi's shared the other one. Through out the night, I got up at least an hour to go to the can: severe case of Tourista thank you very much! Every time I got up, being supper careful not to wake anyone. Well turns out, no one woke no one: we all had it! Hahahaha. We came to the conclusion that it was the street vender in Culiacan that did us ...
... had a tasty brunch at the restaurant, then went to sit in the hot tub for a few minuets, just to let our muscles relax.
Around noon, we set off for town. The bus was arriving just as we went outside, and we managed to flag it down. The drive to town took about 20 minutes, passing through the Zona Dorado (with its 7 Senor Frog Official Shops and "Mayan Massage" salon, which just didn't sound relaxing at all), along the ...
... there was always a police or military checkpoint to amuse us during each and every day but they were always friendly enough and never asked for a bribe or anything like that.
Found our way around Acalpulco and to a trailer park on the north side of this well known tourist enclave ... and big city! Like all the RV parks we have found so far, this one was near empty as the tourist have cleared out because it is the hurricane season. We kinda like it without the ...

On Thursday I didnīt have a very good day. I decided to go to the aquarium but I had loads of trouble getting the right bus and then when I did I went to far on the bus and had to walk back. I didnīt enjoy the aquarium. It was boring and also I felt sad for the fish not being in their natural environment. So I think from now on no more zoos or aquariums as I am not enjoying them. On the way back I couldnīt find a bus to get so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan
My wife and I recently returned from an 8 day stay in Mazatlan. We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan facility. I can't say enough good things about the hotel, the hotel staff or the city of Mazatlan. Even the time share speech and visit to the new Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay (we went voluntarily) was pleasant and low/no pressure. The weather was hot and humid but that's what we signed up for going in July. Our every request was met or exceeded by each member of the hotel staff. The food and drinks at the hotel were first class. We ate the hotel food and drank the water (from the tap) without any concern or ill effects. The people of Mazatlan were extremely friendly and helpful. The city is far less expensive than many other tourist destinations that we have gone to in Mexico and the Caribbean. I pulled a bonehead move and left my digital camera in a cab and the cab driver saw it and brought it back to the hotel!! Imagine that somewhere else. This was our first visit to Mazatlan and we will return. We have also spent time in Cancun and liked it but we will go back to Mazatlan over Cancun any day. We will also be staying at the Pueblo Bonito because it doesn't make sense to stay anywhere else...you couldn't get treated better.
Loved it will return
We stayed at Pueblo Bonito wow it was great and we went fishing it is the most reasonable price in the country we have fished in Jamica and Playadecarmen We caught 4 sailfish and 7 bonita 16 hrs of fishing for 600.00 for 3 people we fish with the bibi fleet.
Lovely Pueblo Bonito
Since 1993 we stayed in Mazatlan every year at different places ( timesharing ), but the very best place in all categories is the Pueblo Bonito!! We are coming again!!
Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan the best
My family and I are very pleased with the excellent accomodations and services from Pueblo Bonito. The staff is friendly and accomodating to their guest. I was not happy with my bed. I requested to have a softer bed and received a foam mattress pad. The mattress pad worked perfectly. The pad was thick and provided a lot of cushion. I was in a hurry to get to the airport that I accidently left my wallet in the hotels safe. I called the hotel and informed them of my situation.
Immediately, the concierge staff took a taxi and met with me at the airport and delivered my wallet. The concierge staff went beyond their dutys to assure that I received my wallet. I would recommend Pueblo Bonito its a beautiful hotel.
We booked our 8 day trip to Mazatlan after researching it extensively. We were extremely pleased with the hotel and staff. They were friendly, professional and most accomodating. The rooms were spacious and clean, although the beds were uncomfortably hard. When we arrived, I asked to upgrade to an ocean view on the 3rd floor. They did so most graciously and did not charge us for the upgrade. We went on the city tour and truely enjoyed it and stopped at El Shrimp Bucket for lunch. We also went on a time share tour of their new hotel, "Emerald Bay" and our tour guide did not pressure us and we received a nice lunch. Laying on the beach under the palapas was especially relaxing especially with the warm trade winds to cool us off. We also enjoy the 3 pools and hot tub. The swim up bar was especially fun. It's also a great place for families. On Wednesday, we went to the pool party ($18 per person), which was a bargain, since it was all you can eat and drink from 7-10. We also went to the Mexican Fiesta at Playa Mazatlan Hotel, again all you can eat and drink and the food was fabulous. They put on quite a show. ($26 per person). The best way to get around is the pulmonia. It looks like a golf cart and very inexpensive. We also jet skied for $40 a half hour. And the parasailing was only $25 per person. In Cabo it was $60 per person. All in all it was a fabulous vacation. Alot cheaper than Cabo San Lucas. We will definately go back. I highly reccomend it.
Just returned from our first trip to Mazatlan. What a fabulous place! We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito in Mazatlan and found it very enjoyable (myself and my three kids). The service was wonderful, the staff warm and helpful (they make you learn a little Spanish!). We were treated very well and will return.Mazatlan itself is warm, friendly and fun. Be careful the week before Easter as it's Holy Week, and this is the city the people of Mexico vacation in. It was getting very crowded before we left, but it was nice to experience as well.....I wouldn't recommend going during holy week if you are impatient with traffic!Make sure to check out Gus Gus and the Shrimp Factory (more expensive but lots of shrimp and lobster). Joes Oyster Bar is the happening night spot, as is Bora Bora.The pulmania's are the best transport, just negotiate your price before you get in....if you don't like the price tell them to forget it, they will agree with yours if it's reasonable! Hope you like Rap and Techno, they play it a lot!I read the reveiw from the person who said they were ripped off with Emerald Bay (also a Pueblo Bonito property)....I'm not sure how. The time share presentation was to the point and clear, they documented everything they told us. That hotel is the MOST beautiful place in the area...it's utterly amazing. Only problem is it's about ten minutes north of the north end of the hotel/golden zone, so transportation would have to be well planned.Go, it's a great time.
Oh Those Beds!
We stayed at the resort in November for 4 nights.Our room was spacious and the ocean sounds were great, but the room was on the extreme end of the hotel and we had a view of parking lots, not the lovely landscaped views from most rooms.The beds were so hard I had a sore rib for a couple weeks. I would request a room closer to the middle of the resort next time, and hopefully the beds will be softened up...
Just returned from trip. Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan was very nice--lots of real Mexican flavor and very comfortable--except for the beds!! They were a mattress on a slab of concrete.
Home Away From Home
We have stayed at Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan 3 times in the last 6 years and the excellence of the service has never deviated. The resort is maintained in top shape and the employees are delightful. The restaurants are also excellent. We are going back again this December to our "home away from home".
Loved the Pueblo Bonito, going back this Christmas!
Had a lovely Junior Suite with a view of the other side of the hotel and the pool. This tme we have requested an ocean view, even offered to upgrade to a luxury suite! I will let you know what this time is like when we get back. Some really good restaurants to eat at in Mazatlan, too!
