Mazatlan is world-renowned for its beaches and dazzling sunshine. With miles of coastline that beckons to the weary traveler, upon arrival many tourists simply make a bee-line for the beach and call it a good. And while this is a perfectly wonderful way to spend your trip to Mexico, there are some great outdoor activities in Mazatlan should you get tired of the sand between your toes (though I can’t imagine why).

Surfing – Surfing’s popularity has spiked in recent years, and in Mazatlan, that’s a good thing – it means rentals are easy to come by. If you're looking to surf or body board, your best bet is to head up to Playa Bruja (Witch Beach) just to the end of the Golden Zone (Zona Dorada). You can take a bus or taxi here – everyone knows it by name – and it’s a great escape because there's typically little competition for waves and the beach is less crowded than others closer to the city center.

Horseback Riding – Who doesn't dream of riding horses along the beach? This ever-popular activity is best done in a small group and is also available as a package deal. Should the beach not entice you, Mazatlan is flanked with tropical forests and foothills, and watching the sun set over Mazatlan while out in the wilderness with your horse is an incredible experience.

Sportfishing – Sportfishing is popular in Mazatlan. Any one of a number of deep water charters will take you out on a boat, set your lines, and let you trawl for the sea’s copious bounty – fish, that is. Marlin, Sailfish, tuna, Mahi-mahi, shark – you name it, you can catch it.

Canopying – Canopying is the modern name for zip-lining, and in Mazatlan and its surrounding tropical forests, this is a great adrenaline rush that gives you something to take home and tell the family about. Perfectly safe but fun as can be, your canopying guides will send you flying through the forest treetops giving you some spectacular views of the Mazatlan landscape – what’s not to love?

Golfing – What, you thought that there was just beach in Mazatlan? Think again. Mazatalan has some excellent golf courses. Estrella del Mar and El Cid are world-class and very popular golfing getaways. Others prefer the Club de Golf Campestre – the oldest golf club in Mazatlan – for its homey feel. Any way you slice it (don't mind the pun), golfing is a great derivation from the days spent on the beach.
