Mazatlan will always be a good idea to vacation and enjoy a few days at the beach, but that doesn't take away the importance of taking precautions and taking care of possible accidents. For this reason, you should know that this beautiful port also has some dangerous areas that you should stay away from, do you know them?
The most dangerous beaches in Mazatlan
According to Gustavo Guadalupe Espinoza, commander of the Aquatic Rescue Squadron in Mazatlan, these are the most dangerous beaches in the city.
Cerritos and Brujas Beaches
Because they are open sea areas, the currents on these Mazatlan beaches could be dangerous for all tourists.
Golden Zone (pebble zone)
Even in the golden zone, the danger can reach bathers, especially near the Pueblo Bonito and Valentinos hotels, as they are located in a very rocky area.
Very close to Fort 31 de Marzo, in Old Mazatlan, is located one of the most unsafe beaches, because just as in the golden zone, it also has an area with many rocks.
The letters on Mazatlan's Malecon are one of the favorite places to take pictures, everything will be fine as long as you don't think of going down to the beach near there since sea currents commonly form and can endanger the lives of visitors.
As a last piece of information, it should be noted that during different times of the year some other dangerous areas could be added to the list, so it is always important to keep an eye on the safety flags that are placed on the beach.

Red flag: high risk (do not enter).
