We are located in the New Marina directly on the sea. While many places advertise beachfront property, you will find that this residence is more than beachfront. It is not a high rise with a view of the ocean and access to the beach through a lobby. You are literally sitting on a rock on the breaking wave and your balcony is the seawall. It is illegal to build anything this close to the water anymore, so you will seldom find a residence with this proximity to the ocean. Guests are six steps down to the roaring Pacific Ocean with the sound of the ocean waves reverberating through the home. When you unlock the front door, you face a wall of glass doors open to the deep blue Pacific Ocean. As soon as the front door is open, the roar of the waves transfixes you as they crash on the ocean rocks at your feet. Because the ocean draws you first, I will describe it first. The ocean patio is very large with a floor of stone blasted marble and a low marble tiled wall. This wall, made for sitting is the actual sea wall and holds back high waves. Descending down the six steps from this ocean patio is your private locked door to the rock, sand and waves. The marble steps are outfitted with an ocean shower to keep you sand free. There are with sun lounges for dining, entertaining and sun bathing.
The home is decorated in Mexican Colonial from the beautiful city of Tlaquepaque with washed adobe walls, antique carved furniture and rattan. The floors are done in Mexican ties with hand painted Talavera tile inserts. The walls are painted in old Colonial Mexico with a blue hand rubbed base and a terracotta strip. Home is filled with fine examples of Mexican art. The Master bedroom with double king bed. The second bedroom is called The Toucan Room and has twin beds, a six foot mirrored closet and its own private bath, again with hand painted Talavera tiles. There is a six foot mirrored closet and its own private marble bath. The master bedroom walks out to the patio and the sea. Sleeping is accompanied by the sound of the crashing waves. The second bedroom overlooks the garden.
The living room faces a twelve foot window on the ocean and is furnished in wicker and antiques and accessorized like the entire house in Mexican folk craft obtained throughout Mexico. Off the living room is a beautiful kitchen with granite tops. kitchen island and bar. The kitchen is filled with everything the modern cook needs. Off the kitchens are small garden areas with a Mexican leather table for two for coffee in the morning. Baths are are new marble with walk in showers.

You are sitting on the ocean. View is the same as if you were on a boat at sea. ...moreless
There are miles and miles of beautiful beaches in Mazatlan. This residence sits on the sand on what is referred to as Hidden Beach or Playa Escondida. It is usually a large sandy beach although after summer storms can have rocky tidepools. This is not just a view of the ocean. Your large ocean patio wall is the seawall and at high tide you can sit on your patio wall and get your feet wet. You have your own private steps and secured door from your patio to the ocean waves. The sound of the waves crashing fills the home and sea winds cascade through the rooms. In the morning oyster divers, fisherman and shrimp men walk the beach providing fresh seafood. In the evening, unbelievable views as the sun lowers into the horizon. ...moreless

For many people, fishing is the reason they come to Mazatlan in the first place. Mazatlan is the home of one of the largest commercial fishing fleets in Mexico.

Opportunities for good fishing abound all year-round: swordfish and striped marlin from January to April; blue marlin, May to December; black marlin, July to December; sailfish, March to December; dorado, March to December; and tuna all year.

Mazatlan is unique among Mexican vacation destinations. While places such as Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas were built specifically for the tourist industry, Mazatlan is a beautiful old colonial town with over 500 years cultural heritage. It is a real working seaport with the largest shrimp-fishing fleet and the largest marina in Mexico. While it has beautiful tourist areas, large marinas and four huge golf courses, it is not a “Disney built” Mexico. It has many many miles of pristine beaches, something not found in most of the other tourist areas of Mexico. There are more miles of beach than any other city in South America with the exception of Rio de Janeiro. The city has many old traditions built around the people and is also host to the third largest Carnival in the world, second only to Rio and New Orleans. It is definitely the “Pearl of the Pacific”. Temperatures here range from the mid 60’s to the mid 90’s. There are all the features of a resort town. There is water sports, boating, surfing. We have some of the best golf courses in Mexico. But our pride is deep sea fishing. For those looking for a trophy fish such blue or striped marlin, sail fish, yellow fin tuna or mahi mahi, mostly known here as Dorado, (for it beautiful, bright golden colors), Mazatlán is one of the best places in the world for this activity. It’s an exciting adventure that begins at sunrise when boats head for blue waters—some times only six miles out, others as far as 30, where there is a chance to find these fish, resting, feeding or jumping. Using trolling lures, dead bait and live bait, these boats cover a great area trying to find fish. The marine radios are all on and everyone pays attention to the live updates on tracking schools
There is a rebirth in Mazatlan, prompted by the president of the Centro Histórico Project. The neighborhood’s rebirth as an urban cultural district is the product of years of work by a small but committed cadre of advocates. It is a rebirth rooted in ideas of urbanism and smart growth. Today, in Mazatlán’s Centro Histórico the old mingles with the new on every block of this nearly 200-year-old downtown, where a mix of multigenerational families and recent transplants from around the world amplify the neighborhood’s cosmopolitan air. The Centro Histórico isthe resurrected arts district and architectural marvel of the city. There are galleries, sidewalk cafes, artists, musicians, designers, foodies.Around the plaza are the broad porches and tall ceilings of neo-Classical homes, freshly repainted in tropical colors and restored to an approximation of their previous grandeur. Across the plaza a few hours earlier, the layered rhythms of música folklórica erupt from the city’s Municipal Arts Center. There is a certain lilting tropical mood. Days begin and end at the plazuela, where the ocean often smells so close as to be at your feet. There are extended breakfasts; unhurried walks along the malecón; raw oysters at thatched-roofed beach restaurants; a sunset beers on roofs, late dinners of fresh seafood and competing rhythms. When the air cools the easy pace gives way to a feverish night life. The energy of Centro Histórico’s scene is unbelievable against the backdrop of the architecture of two centuries past.
When visiting Mazatlan, take a 'pulmonia' or open air taxi around. Don't forget to go to Lookout Hill or Ice Box Hill for the wonderful views of Old Mazatlan. Visit the Angela Peralta Theater, take a Sunset tour, go to Deer Island and then go back and relax on the miles and miles of clean beaches and at night visit our discos. Mazatlan has the party. There is a nice wide spectrum of night life available, from dining while being serenaded by mariachis, to dancing to the megaton bass of million dollar sound systems. There are roving bands of mariachi musicians all along the golden zone. They will often play one song for free, and then ask you if you would like to pay for a second song.
Mazatlan boasts one of the largest carnival celebrations in Mexico. It’s also one of the oldest, and has been celebrated in more or less its present form for more than a hundred years. Less wanton than Rio’s and more sedate than that of New Orleans or Veracruz, it is nonetheless a spectacular affair that captures the seaside city and holds it hostage for five days and nights each late winter or early spring. It’s a commingling of culture and carousing. The tourism board touts Mazatlan’s carnival as family-oriented, and it’s true that there are poetry contents, literary awards, and ballet in the baseball stadium. For many families the highlight of the week is the grand parade. Long before dark, crowds start to fill downtown’s main street, which parallels the ocean and malecon, downtown Mazatlan’s famous seaside sidewalk. They stand four deep on the sidewalk; young men climb available statues and pillars and posts. there are miles of the most beautiful floats.
About the owner: I am a research biologist in the fields of oncology and aging and speaker in these same areas. My husband was head of West Coast Engineering for a large chemical company.
Why the Owner Chose Mazatlan: We search throughout Mexico for a piece of property that was in a real Mexican city with miles of sandy beach. We did not want a Mexican city that was developed strictly for tourists. We wanted a Mexican City with a historical presence and this was Mazatlan. We also wanted something directly on the beach. We did not want a high rise with a view of the ocean. We wanted to be directly on the sea. There are very few properties that fit this description. This place was one of them. Our balcony was the seawall, protecting against the crashing waves at high tide.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: It is possible to accommodate and entertain large groups here. There is also one of the most beautiful historical centers in Mexico with large plazas and cathedrals. We have had two weddings here and one renewal of vows. The large ocean balcony will accommodate large groups.
