Mazatlan: Two vacations in one

Mazatlan: Golden or Olden? Most tourists choose either the Golden Zone or the Historical Center when they vacation in Mazatl├ín. I sampled both on a recent five-day trip, checking in first at El Cid, a $146-a-night all-inclusive beach resort, then moving downtown to a $50-a-night room at La Siesta, one of the first hotels built in Mazatl├ín when tourism began developing in the 1950s. The big surprise: I loved them both.

Great insights for anyone thinking of doing the same. Go to Countdown to Mexico
