Cerritos is a point at the north end of the tourist area in Mazatlán.  It is known as the best surfing area in Mazatlán.  There are also a couple of restaurants and shops.  It is about a 20 minute bus ride north of the golden zone.  Catch the 'Sabalo Cerritos' bus anywhere on Avenida Camaron Sabalo heading north.  Get off the bus when it goes around the roundabout.

People surf at Cerritos and at the nearby Playa Bruja beach.

After getting off the bus you will see a small strip mall with a few shops(surf, coffee, souvenirs).  There are 2 restaurants at the very end with an ocean view.  There is a trailer park behind the strip of shops.

Cerritos is good for an inexpensive half-day day trip.

From Cerritos you can see 'Emerald Bay'.  The beach isn't great at Cerritos, but the surfing is the best you can get in Mazatlán.  If you surf, you will end up at Cerritos.

There are 2 restaurants overlooking the beach at Cerritos.  These are very basic restaurants.  They always seem to have people in them, but we have never eaten at them.  There is a restaurant on playa Bruja that is excellent.  It is just down (west) the first street at the Cerritos roundabout.
