Getting Around Mazatlan
Visitors to Mazatlan will find it quite easy to explore the city either on foot or through a variety of transportation options available from the airport. The Mazatlan bus system offers an economical way to see the city, but can take a little longer than driving around yourself in a rental car. However, with fares costing less than $7.50 pesos, compared to taxi fares which start at $25 pesos, taking the bus is the perfect transportation for those on a budget.
If you're wanting to check out the scenery, the Pulmonia taxis provide a great way to experience the city. These vehicles are reminiscent of golf carts and give the traveler a genuine, open air taste of Mazatlan.
