Discover the history of a city nicknamed the Pearl of the Pacific on this tour of Mazatlán. You'll also ride a cable car up to the famous 1873 Observatory!
Mazatlán Tour + 1873 Observatory
At the time of your choice, we'll pick you up at your hotel and set off on a panoramic tour of Mazatlán.
First, we'll take in views of the Pacific Ocean as we make our way down the Malecón of Mazatlán, the city's prized seaside promenade. Stretching several miles along the coast, it's considered one of the longest boardwalks in the world!
Once we reach Cerro del Vigía hill, we'll hop on a cable car that will take us up to the famed 1873 Observatory. This neoclassical construction, known as the Observatorio, was originally built as a military observation post. During the visit, you'll delve into the times of frequent attacks by pirates and privateers, and learn interesting historical facts about the city in a documentary.
We'll also visit the El Nido sanctuary ('The Nest' in English), where we'll see and learn all about beautiful species like macaws, parrots and flamingos!
Then, we'll take you to the area known as the Agaviary, where you'll get to know the different processes in the production of mezcal and why it has become a symbol of Mexico. But that's not all! Before we head to our next stop, we'll visit the Observatory's Sky Bar to enjoy a refreshing drink with spectacular views.
Next, the tour will take us downtown, where we'll check out other city staples like the Mazatlán Cathedral, the Mujer Mazalteca monument, Plazuela Hidalgo, the Church of San José and El Clavadista ('The Diver') from the comfort of the bus.
After a four-hour tour, we'll take you back to your hotel in Mazatlán.
