At Home in Mazatlan everyone is a winner

Why snowbirds Call Mazatlan Home

The promise of warm weather and seemingly endless beaches lures visitors to “try” Mazatlan for the first time. Yet it is the social, cultural and outdoor activities that convince snowbirds to return and call Mazatlan home each winter.

In order to understand why Mazatlan is such a dynamic place, it is important to understand its origins. Hundreds of years before becoming a tourist resort, Mazatlan was an indigenous settlement and then a fishing village and port. This rich historic legacy makes Mazatlan the only seaside resort in Mexico with a historic center of town. The locals are very proud of the city’s heritage and have worked tirelessly to restore the downtown core. The famed Angela Peralta Theater is among the restored buildings, and it is one of the gems located only a few blocks from the beach. The theater crowns an area lined with historic buildings and restaurants enriched by artistic performances throughout the year.

Local pride in Mazatlan’s history has allowed the seaside resort to maintain its essence while developing the luxuries all travelers seek in a recreational and retirement destination. Today, Mazatlan is a great destination for golfers, tennis players and deep-sea fishermen. It is the combination of possibilities that attracts snowbirds back each year.
