Observatorio 1873 is an amazing experience! The beautiful grounds, the aviary (glad I took my earrings off!), the history of Mazatlan video, the cactus garden, sunset in the bar and the funicular ride...a truly must-see destination! Our tour guide, Carla, was terrific, too!

We signed for a tour. Carla was our English speaking guide. She was excellent. Excellent Mazatlan history video and other history artifacts to see. Great views from the top. We will encourage our friends to go next year.

Great vibes all around. Friendly people, attentive staff, good music and drinks. My friend and I didn’t do any water activities but we loved the beach! Such beautiful water. A perfect start to our trip.
