Mazatlan is a huge tourist trap year round. Nationals vacation in the summer and foreigners snowbird in the winter months.
Due to the high population of foreigners the prices of things a high as well, especially around water front areas. The locals shop way in town to get reasonable prices for every day things.
During the winter months it is almost impossible to rent an apartment because they are unavailable. The locals now have figured out to rent their apts for the day/week, never the month because that isn't profitable.
Weather: Summer: Bloody hot and humid: 85-90 Fahrenheit @ 60-80% humidity, yes you will sweat all day and roast. Only escaping is indoors will A/C.

Great source of information. Some ideas as to available brands and recommend retail stores would also be helpful

It looks like many of these prices were posted when the peso was about 12 to 1 USD (about 5 years ago). It has since jumped up to 20 to 1, and has now settled about 18 to 1. Prices have increased accordingly, on many things. A 1-BR apartment in Centro is about $600 USD a month. You can find an apartment in a Mexican neighborhood (unfurnished basic, no appliances) for about $200 USD a month. A couple can live conservatively on $1500 USD a month in Mazatlan, but that is not enough to get your temporary resident visas.

Could a couple with an income of $1500 USA live near the beach area? How far is City Centre from the beach?

Is rent for a 1bedroom apartment near the city center really about $175 USD/ month? Thanks
