Hotels are about 40 min. From airport. You get harassed mucho at airport with cheap taxi in exchange for timeshare presentation and cash offer. They are relentless and several stops along way out of airport. If you can say no and get out of the airport there is a taxi stand where you can purchase a reasonable priced taxi. These guys actually get nasty and aggressive so be prepared. Once you get to your hotel. Mazatlan is wonderful Enjoy.
