A must visit area if you are in Mazatlan. Good beaches, restaurants and shopping. Be sure to visit Joe's Oyster Bar for the nightlife. It's a great open air bar on the beach.

The Golden Zone is a perfect area to stay and visit while in Mazatlan. Lots of restaurants, shops and bars with live music. Beach nearby too. Great bus service for transport where ever you want to go (11 pesos).

We always do the all inclusive, but as we walk up and down the beach we see a RV site just south of El CID Castilla hotel. We have talked to a few people who have camped there and they love it!
