Autumn arrived and the action begins in Mazatlan. Here is what’s happening in Mazatlan this fall:
A New Season of Baseball in Mazatlan
Baseball, one of the surprise activities of Mazatlan, returns this October with the local Venados (deer) de Mazatlán. Home games are a short taxi ride from anywhere in town and the tickets, beers, and food are relatively cheap at the game. It is a favorite pasttime among both tourists and locas and the games keep a festive atmosphere with prizes and performances by dancers and mascots.
The International Photography Symposium
October marks the return of one of Latin America’s premier photography events. Now in its seventh year, award-winning photographers travel from across the globe to attend. The photographers, tourists, and locals can view exhibitions, take workshops, listen to lectures and partake in roundtable discussions. The event takes place October 27-29.
Fishing and Golf Tournaments with El Cid Resorts
Mazatlan is not just savory shrimp and fresh oysters. The first-class fishing draws top anglers from around the world and this tournament hosted by the Marina El Cid is one of the highlights. Participants enjoy festive dinners, cocktail parties, an award ceremony, and plentiful fishing off the Pacific coast. The El Cid Dorado Shoot-Out Fishing Tournament takes place on November 5th.
The 27-hole championship course, El Cid Granada Golf & Country Club, hosts a fall tournament. Amatuer golfers compete for thousands of dollars in prizes including vacation packages. The golf tournament is November 11 – 13
The Pacifico Marathon
With the beautiful coastal scenery and fantastic weather it is no surprise the athletes converge on Mazatlán to compete in the annual marathon. Contestants can compete in a weekend of races that include a 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon. The races take place on December 3-4.
Well, those are some of the highlights this autumn for Mazatlan. Any questions, or if you want to make the public aware of other events, let us know.
