If you love a good balance between tourist attractions and living with the locals, this Airbnb condo rental in Mazatlán, Mexico is perfect for you. We’re excited to share our wonderful experience staying in the middle of Mazlatlán, right across from the amazing boardwalk, and why you should definitely consider booking here, too.
This was our first trip to Mazatlán, which means we planned things a little bit differently than we normally do. Without having the comfort of knowing the area, we decided to try and find a condo or hotel somewhere between Old Town (South) and the Golden Zone (North), which our research told us were both great areas to spend some time.
Our primary goal in mind was to experience both popular areas, without wasting too much time traveling to get to them.
We noticed quickly that the area between the Golden Zone and Old Town didn’t have any resorts, and not very many hotels. Airbnb was an option that immediately came to mind, and it didn’t take long for us to find a great listing that met all of our needs.
A condo in the Torre eMe condominium building, couldn’t have been a more perfect fit. Since our stay was a full week, in-unit laundry and a kitchen were a must. This has both, but it gets even better: the building is literally across the street from the beach and ocean, there’s free parking onsite, there’s a Starbucks nearby and it’s centrally located in town.
We were a 10-minute walk away from catching a ballgame with the Mazatlán Venados (an awesome tip we learned from a very nice guy we met at Starbucks), and just a 5-minute walk away from catching live jazz music at La Bohemia in Old Town. The location was absolutely perfect.
Some of our other favorite parts about the stay was the service Tony, the condo owner, gave us, and the ease of check-in. He was always there to answer any questions we had through text and e-mail. He arranged for someone to meet us as we arrived to show us around the condo building, which made check-in very comfortable and easy.
Ultimately, we plan to stay at Torre eMe again should we ever find ourselves back in Mazatlán. We highly recommend checking out this Mazatlán Airbnb listing if you’re traveling there with friends, family or even just as a couple.
