Full description
Explore Mazatlán’s most historic sites on this guided tour, including the city’s observatory building. Take a ride on a funicular railway and visit Cerro del Vigia, Mazatlan’s museum, the Mexican Bird Sanctuary, and more. Get picked up from your hotel and immediately start enjoying views of the streets of Mazatlán, including the famous Malecón (Mazatlán’s boardwalk). First, stop at the observatory, a building that was built by the people of Mazatlán as a military observation post.

Next, experience the city’s history on a funicular ride and admire the port from the top of the Cerro del Vigia. Once at the top of the Cerro del Vigia, enter the museum to watch a short movie about Mazatlán's history.
