Juarez Building

Construction on the two-story Juarez Building was begun during the second half of the 19th century. Spaniard Federico Imana, who created other buildings around La Plazuela Machado, is credited with its design which included space for both business and recreational activities. Members of the Great Society (La Gran Sociedad), the Union or German Club, the Benito Juarez Group and the Lions’ Club all met at one time or another on the second floor.

Over the years, the bottom floor housed business and medical offices, a hardware store, a pharmacy and a publishing agency. And in December of 1897, the first motion pictures ever shown in Sinaloa state were projected in a room of the Juarez Building with the help of a Lumiere Brothers projector.

Gold Zone / Zona Dorada

The Gold Zone or Zona Dorada is a ritzy part of Mazatlan with high end shops. It is quite a hike from the cruise ship terminal so you’ll want to take a bus there. Buses run often and the fares are reasonable. We didn’t go as we were too short on time.
