Mazatlán was recently nominated for UNESCO’s Creative Cities designation in Gastronomy. With this, the destination is seeking to join 26 other cities in the world to have received this designation. The destination is home to a wide variety of cuisine; from seafood and traditional cuisine with the authentic flavors of México to international flavors inspired by Mazatlán’s French, Italian and German influence. 

Mazatlán’s 12 miles of beaches, popular cuisine, four and a half miles of Malecón (boardwalk), El Faro lighthouse, carnival with 120 years of tradition, and affordability are some of the reasons why this destination has gained recognition.
