Ask a local where he or she goes for dinner, and they inevitably mention Mariscos Mazatlán, and the crowds of Mexicans lunching at this simple seafood restaurant lend credibility to the claim. Huge glass cases packed with fresh shrimp, ceviche, and other seafood cocktails abound. You can dine inexpensively and quickly on wonderful seafood soup, or spend a bit more for tender pulpo ajillo (marinated octopus with garlic, chilies, onion, and celery) and enjoy some
great people-watching as you eat.

This was yet another recommendation from our new friend at one of the local ecotour outfits and it did not disappoint. Each couple shared the shrimp combo and the seafood combo, respectively. The seafood came in clay hibachi type devices, was piping hot and very, very fresh. The shrimp for two came with several different preparations; we loved them all but especially the coconut shrimp. The atmosphere is fairly basic, though colorful, and the
service was great. Lots of locals there. The accompanying rice and vegetables were good, though, as in many places down there, not hugely interesting; perhaps this is so the seafood will shine. Spotless bathrooms by the way. Most of the prices were very reasonable, though our combos were understandably high, given all the different preparations for each.
