Mazatlán

Other Sights

Valentinos

I plan to add to this page as I find the time.

This huge flag, at the plaza near the cliff divers' platform, is now raised only on special occasions such as Flag Day (February 24).

The Pacifico Brewery (Cervecería del Pacifico) was founded by three German immigrants.  It began operations in 1900, using a German recipe.  In 1954, the Modelo Group took it over, and the recipe was changed to add rice and corn. Nowadays, both Pacifico Clara and Corona are made there.

We went on a free tour of the brewery, and at the end were offered free samples in the "museum" on the 8th floor, where a splendid view of the city was to be had (see windows in the tower).

This view was taken at sunset from the top to the Freeman Hotel, Olas Altas. Mazatlán's fishing fleet can be seen in the distance.
