MAZATLAN getting around with kids.....

Recommended Posts

I've been researching Mazatlan. 

We are traveling there this March on the Carnival Panorama.  2 adults, 4 kids ages 9-16.  

We are interested in hiking to the top of the lighthouse and going on the glass walkway. 

I'd like to check out the cliff divers at El Clavadista, then maybe check out shops and street performers at Plaza Mochado.


Can someone suggest our best method to get to each stop? I think it's a bit too much to walk with kids on a hot day.

If you don't want to walk, grab a taxi or a pulmonia (open air vehicle like a golf cart).  They are everywhere and the fares are not expensive.  The drivers may quote you a rate in USD, but they will also take pesos.  (And note:  the quote they give you is per vehicle, not per person).

In Mexico always agree on a price before getting into the taxi or pulmonia.

Tell the driver the stops you wish to make and they may agree to drive you from one to another.
