If a pearl signifies smooth, endless, rich, perfection, Mazatlan lives up to its moniker of being Mexico’s “Pearl of the Pacific.” Its long shoreline of golden beaches, azure lagoons, seaside promenades, and inviting coastal islands beckons snowbirds and sunbirds alike. As do the lingering, friendly ghosts of its colonial history.
Just south of the Tropic of Cancer, Mazatlan enjoys temperate semi-tropical weather year-round. The average temperature is between 77 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit, with an average of 300 sunny days per year.
