Mazatlán Recognized with the Travel Weekly Gold Magellan Award

Mazatlán, México. October 8, 2018 - Travel Weekly recently announced that the Mazatlán Tourism Board received the Travel Weekly Gold Magellan Award for its ‘Stories Make the Best Souvenirs’ marketing communications program promoting the destination and surrounding cities.

The destination winning an award comes as no surprise to those who live or work there, the city affectionately referred to as the Pearl of The Pacific. Known for its famous boardwalk or Malecon, Historic District with old world charm, and amazing dining scene to name just a few key points. Beautiful views can be enjoyed throughout the city. What makes Mazatlán so unique is the blend of history and culture in addition to the tropical beauty. México has many beautiful beach locations with absolutely amazing beaches and activities. The Riviera Maya is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world for example.

So many choose the Pacific coast however, for its close proximity to the US and Canadian airports, and also for the blend of activities which provide a truly magical experience. Visitors can enjoy a gourmet meal or sip a coffee in the historic district with 19th century buildings, or enjoy a cocktail on the beach gazing out at the nearby islands.

For new visitors arriving in Mazatlán, one of the best ways to see the city is by a guided tour. While free styling is always an option, a tour provides a unique view of some of the most interesting areas and of course, the opportunity to learn about the history and reasoning behind some of the most interesting parts of the city. The Teatro Angela Peralta is a must, as is the main market, of course, the breath taking views of the basilica. The malecon, or oceanfront boardwalk, is truly one of the most scenic in the world. During the early spring months the malecon is home to the world-famous Carnaval. All year long, marathons, festivals, parties and events are held on the malecon and it is a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail and a sunset or head out for a romantic or family stroll.
