Mazatlan itself is one of Mexico's best-kept secrets...but the truth is, the treasures that lie within Mazatlan's borders give couples a whole world of  romantic secrets to discover. At the risk of exposing them to too many honeymooners, we felt it just wouldn't be right if we didn't share our favorites. These six fun, romantic spots and activities in Mazatlan are just too delightful to pass up if you're planning on a honeymoon in Mazatlan.

Baseball Crazy

This makes for extra special honeymoon occasions for baseball-loving couples, who can inquire with the hotel's front desk to inquire about snagging some tickets.

Rooftop Drinks at Bar 15

Joe's Oyster Bar
