Mazatlan will have its own Gastronomy Quarter


It is contemplated that it covers the Center, Historic Center, and Olas Altas

MAZATLÁN.- New projects are coming, Mazatlán will have a Gastronomic District that will integrate its restaurant community from the Center and Historic Center of the port, a project that they hope to materialize in a short time, said Marco Bernal, representative of the project. 

A gastronomic neighborhood? Yes, as if it were a flea market. This project is envisioned to work the same way; Through the streets of the Historic Center, they plan to place stalls where people can come and buy their food and products.  

This has the objective of bringing together all the merchants not only from the area around the Machado square but from other surrounding streets that offer history and a variety of Mexican and foreign food dishes. 

The main thing is that tourists and locals find out that around Machado square there are more restaurants, where they will be able to find dishes that range from regional, national and international cuisine. 


“The Gastronomic Neighborhood is made up of all the local restaurants that are in the area to consolidate ourselves and mainly for people to find out that there are only restaurants in the Machado square,” he said. 

This plan is not new, since it was announced that the project has existed since before the pandemic, creating a gastronomic corridor that integrates restaurants in the area. 

It is contemplated that it covers from the Center, Historic Center to Olas Altas.  

In the Historic Center area, there are between 75 and 80 restaurants, most of which would be added to the Gastronomic District, with which it seeks to promote the different areas and culinary varieties that they offer. The Ministry of Economic Development and Tourism (Sedectur) and the Municipal Planning Institute (Implan), both agencies of the municipal government, are involved in the project.
