Mazatlán's name comes from a Náhuatl
Indian word "Mazatl" which means "Place of Deer." Mazatlán
has about a half million residents and is one of Mexico's
best billfish sport fishing areas. It has a very important
commercial seaport. Although towns were first settled
in this area about 400 years ago, a permanent colony
was not established until the early 1820's with the first
municipal government installed in 1827.
The Museo de Arqueologia downtown has a small but good collection of pre-Columbian
artifacts and exhibits of contemporary art. At the very southern end of town,
before the malecon begins, is the actual port area. Here you can see large, modern
ferry boats that ply the waters each night to La Paz, 235 miles northwest, across
the Sea of Cortez. The trip takes 18 hours and sleeping cabins are available.
Arrangements can be made at the ferry pier or through a travel agent.
