Go Shopping and Meet Mazatlán’s Friendly Locals
If you’re looking for keepsakes or just browsing the local shops, you’ll find a consistency in every store: very friendly locals. My favorite shopping is in Centro Histórico, where stores are blended with artist venues and historical city sites. A shining example is Casa Etnika, which sells local arts and crafts. Along with excellent customer service, it’s a great opportunity to chat with Mazatlán locals, learn more about the city and get a tip or two on other places to visit. And of course, an opportunity to buy a souvenir to take home.
