Lonely Planet review

That ostentatious white castle on Punta Camarón at the south end of the Zona Dorada is the undisputed epicenter of Mazatlán’s nightlife. Inside its walls are a half-dozen clubs, including several of the city’s most popular dance spots: Valentino’s draws a mixed crowd to three dance floors throbbing with hip-hop and Latin music; Bora Bora is popular for its open-air dance floor and lax policy on bar-top dancing; Sumbawa Beach Club is the perfect after-hours spot for dancing in the sand, lounging on an oversized mattress or cooling off in the pool; and El Nivel is a cantina-style bar that sometimes features banda sinaloense, a boisterous brass band unique to the state of Sinaloa.
