7 (Mostly) Free Ways to Stay Fit at Casa Lucila

Sophia Boccard


Going on vacation to Mazatlan and need to fit in a workout plan to your travel plans? Even though we don’t have a hotel gym, we are a very tiny boutique hotel, we do have a list of 7 great and (mostly) free ways to fit in a workout on your trip to Mazatlan.

SWIM IN THE FREE OCEAN POOL (yes, this is really a thing)
Need an Olympic-size pool? Forget that and train for your race by swimming in the ocean pool located just a short five-minute walk from the hotel.

Mazatlan’s beautiful historic center has been going through years of restoration that it is definitely worth walking around downtown to check out the beautiful renovations that have been popping up – our suggestion? Start at the beautifully restored Plaza Machado.


BIKE THE ENTIRE MALECON (ok, maybe this option isn’t free but it’s still fun!)
Bike on the second longest boardwalk in the world and longest in Latin America, with 4.5 miles (8 km), you’re bound to get a sweaty workout in. Go to our friends at Baikas steps from our hotel to rent your bikes for the hour or entire afternoon.


If steps are your thing and you really don’t feel like leaving the premises, fit in a quick but tough workout running (or walking) up and down the three floors at Casa Lucila. It’s time to feel the legs buuuuuurn and walk right past that elevator.


HIKE UP TO THE TOP OF EL FARO (walk, run, hike, step your way to the top)
There are over 325 steps to get to the top of the El Faro, and that’s not including the 15-20 minutes it takes to walk TO the steps. If you like climbing, there are some shortcuts up the side of the hill (or is it a mountain?) to get to the top faster if you want to test your adventurous side.


TREADMILL + WEIGHTS + GYMBAG = HEAVEN (ok, we’re being sarcastic here)
If you really must get yourself to a gym, there are a couple nearby. However may we suggest the great outdoors? Along the boardwalk you will find sections that feature jungle gyms that give you all the basics that mirror exercise equipment found at a gym. 

STRIKE A (YOGA) POSE BY OUR INFINITY POOL (at 7am you may have the whole top floor to yourself!)
If you’re an early riser and you want to feel one with the sunrise, take a spot by our infinity pool on the 3rd floor and get into your Downward Dog position while checking out the sunrise with the ocean breeze blowing through your hair.


After all is said and done, get a rejuvenating massage at Piccolino Spa and top it off with a glass of wine and a delicious meal at Lucila’s Restaurant. You deserve it.
