Seafood, especially shrimp, is a staple at this Pacific town by the sea. Mr. Fantastic is not a fan of seafood, but I was in heaven.

For lunch, we ate wherever we happened to be. One day it was at a tavern across from the town plaza and another was by the expansive boardwalk, in a small restaurant called Puerto Viejo. Both times, my husband and I both ate a ceviche appetizer and entrees, plus multiple beers and our tab was less than $20! My favorite lunch was Mr. Lionso's Playa Bruja. They had a live band and the drinks were wonderful. I drank a habanero-mango margarita and I was definitely tipsy by the time the check came.
My favorite meals were our decadent dinners. The first night we were in town, we ate at Cilantro's at Pueblo Bonito Hotel and the food was wonderful. Their margaritas were not very good, but the pina coladas were delicious and the Imperial Shrimp made our mouths water. The hidden gem in Mazatlan is a casual grill restaurant that our hosts took us to called Las Brochetas. It is across from their Mega-Mart and is BYOB so it was nice to stop at the store and pick up whatever we wanted to drink and bring it with us. Between the charro bean soup, loaded baked potatoes, and the different skewers, we had to be rolled back to the house! Pancho's was our favorite dinner place for both the seaside ambiance and the delicious food. I really wanted to buy one of the Day of the Dead figurines, but I ended up leaving it behind.

Mr. Fantastic and I also snuck away to walk down the famous boardwalk in Mazatlan, called El Malecon. At four miles long, it is the longest boardwalk in Mexico and while my husband tried to pretend he didn't like holding my hand, I kept blabbering on about how romantic it was to walk along the beach holding hands.
