At Least Two Great Brothels

La Fonda

La Fonda means “The Inn” in Spanish.  It is a well-established, well-respected brothel. The whore houses in Mexico are called “casa de citas”, or “house of dates”. La Fonda is located on a prime corner at the edge of the downtown area. It’s well-lit and very secure. The lower floor has a bar with a separate entrance. Upstairs is where the action is. The stairs are only one flight up, but are very steep, so you have to be in average condition or better to get inside. Open every day but Sunday, the girls begin showing up in the late afternoon/early evening. 

Most important, these brothel escorts are are all 6+ on a scale of 1 to 10, with plenty of different types to suit every taste. A few even speak a little English. At any time there will be 10 to 20 girls working. The cost is $800 pesos (about $45 USD). You get a clean, private room, the girl of your choice, one condom and a full hour. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and very safe. The owner is usually there, and he speaks perfect English in case you have questions or concerns. 


Pronounced “tam ow lee pass”, Tamaulipas is 4 blocks from La Fonda. The two brothels are run by two brothers. Tamaulipas is an old hotel, so you enter through at street level into the lobby. It’s there you meet the girls. Tamaulipas uses the same format as La Fonda. The prices, features and quality of girls are the same. There are a few differences. One is the ease of entry. If it’s raining, you’ll be wet by the time you get to the top of the outside stairs at La Fonda. The second difference is simply a different group of girls. If you don’t find what you want at La Fonda, it’s a 3 minute cab ride to Tamaulipas. (Don’t walk. It’s not safe.) 

The final difference is that Tamaulipas is in a quieter, darker neighborhood. Especially if you’re alone and it’s late at night, “quiet and dark” is not where you want to be. Both hotels are 5 minutes from the Fisherman’s Monument (a well-known landmark) on the Malecon. Depending on where your hotel is located, you can be back in your room within minutes.  While it’s close, it’s not safe.  Any cab driver will be able to take you to either brothel.

Other Options 

If for some reason it doesn’t work out at either La Fonda and Tamaulipas, there are always other options.  Taxi drivers will know what they are.   In Mazatlan, casa de citas are legal so you’ll always have plenty of choices.  Don’t neglect the strip clubs.  They are the best pure strip clubs in Mexico.  Tijuana has combo strip club/brothels which are great, but in Mazatlan, the girls actually dance!  You can either get laid in the club or take the girls home.
