MAZATLÁN, A GASTRONOMIC DESTINATION YOU HAVE TO VISIT
Traveling and knowing new places is amazing! Immerse yourself in the local culture, its ideology, its customs; the colors in its streets, the friendly gestures of its inhabitants, the aromas that come to us through our walks and the music that surrounds us at every step is what creates unforgettable experiences and memories.
But how do you really know a place?
Through the food. Yes!
Exploring a city or a small town through food, allows us to really get close to the local soul in every bite, sometimes transporting us to ancient times or, even to places outside the continent, to oceans away.
And although it is not only the choice of ingredients, or the mixture of flavors, the amount of herbs, the combination of textures and the right temperature make it a unique dish, but the atmosphere that accompanies the experience, the place, its sounds , its lighting, its people.
With a privileged location and, rightly called the "Pearl of the Pacific", Mazatlán offers more than warm waters, sunny beaches and friendly people. This cozy city is a thriving seaport with great fishing activity, which is why Mazatlan is “The Wolrd Capital of Shrimp”.
As if that were not enough, this city is also rich in agriculture, producing almost 30% of the vegetables and legumes consumed in Mexico, which always guarantees fresh produce wherever you go from this charming place.
Along the coastal zone and the Golden Zone, you will find dozens of local restaurants offering typical delicacies from the region, to bistros inspired by European cuisine, led by renowned chefs with international experience.
THE "WORLD CAPITAL OF SHRIMP"
In Mazatlán, the shrimp is available year-round and you will see it available in all sizes. The locals prepare it in many different ways and as a star of infinity of dishes. Simply walk through the Golden Zone to find multiple restaurants that offer fresh ceviches and shrimp stews or shop around the beautiful Historic Center, on whose cobbled streets and between colonial facades, you'll find culinary jewels worthy of being discovered every night.
Now, if you want to buy this delicacy directly from the sea, you can go to the beach where you will find fishermen from sunrise to sunset, fishing with nets woven by them, using ancient techniques preserved from generation to generation.
THE LOCAL MARKET
The Pino Suarez Market is located in the city center and this year marks 120 years of having its doors open to Mazatlecos and visitors, housing more than 100 vendors who, daily offer the freshest products, from fruits and vegetables, Meat, crafts, clothing and a food area.
The Market was built in iron and steel, based on the Art Nouveau style, the same technique that was used for the construction of the Eiffel Tower seven years before. To this day, the Pino Suarez Market remains one of the main commercial points of the city thanks to its privileged location and more than a century of history and tradition.
