Taxi from airport

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.

I disagree with the your context.

Example: I can go thru the airport and 0 - 2 words of communication with the sales folks. In over 30 years and well over 300 trips (yes most Mexican Costal Airports have sales people waiting) I've never had any of them get nasty with me.

So....there must be more to your story or at least details you left out.

We came through on Saturday and it was a breeze to get a taxi. Thanks to folks from this Forum we found the new kiosk and went directly there. We did have some timeshare salespeople ask if we needed a taxi, but when we said no thank you they left us alone. No problem at all.

We were approached by one of these guys when we arrived in Mazatlan. I know where the real taxi kiosk is so I just said no and that was it.

No one was nasty to me

During airport renovations they have moved the taxi kiosk. When you exit the customs area and go through the door into the main terminal you now turn to your right and go right to the end of the hallway where you exit via the door there. The last thing before the door is the taxi kiosk. The table right before the kiosk is timeshare salesmen.

I find Mazatlan airport very easy and friendly - never any problems. My 20 year old enjoyed the same experience going threw the airport by himself less than 2 weeks ago. Sorry about your experience.
