Mazatlan ferry port in Mexico connects you with La Paz in Baja California Sur with a choice of up to 3 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Mazatlan to La Paz crossing is from 13 hours and the crossing is operated by Baja Ferries.
Situated on the west coast of Mexico, Mazatlan is in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The only ferry route out of Mazatlan is to La Paz, a resort on the peninsula to the west of Mexico, with crossings three times per week, typically lasting around 13 hours.
Mazatlan is a place of constant change: over the decades it has gone from an upbeat coastal destination to a tourist focussed market town, then it went completely full circle and returned to being a hub of welcoming, creative people residing near the luxurious beaches. It would be understandable spending the entire holiday just at the beaches; the gorgeous white sands and crystal waters resemble the idyllic picture of a postcard.
Away from the beautiful beaches, there are enough landmarks to fill the itinerary of the most organised traveller. The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, the Archaeological Museum and the El Faro Lighthouse are must-sees when in Mazatlan, especially on the rare occasion when the weather isn’t as pleasurable as usual. For those who just enjoy perusing the sights under no stress, the old town is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon.
The transport offering the best value for money is the white open-topped taxis called ‘Pulmonias’ which are ubiquitous around Mazatlan. They have set routes and won’t veer of course, yet are an ideal way to get closer to the desired destination. Failing that, it is probably worthwhile getting a taxi for quick and convenient transport for visitors willing to pay a little bit extra.
