This park is a nice place for a little outing like a picnic or a walk. You can see ducks, turtles, iguanas, birds, & various other small critters.

Face it Los Mochis is a serious agribusiness town. There was nothing here when the town was invented back when to grow sugar cane. But, right next to the ruins of the sugar mill is this very nice big park. It has a few names, Sinaloa Park, Botanical Garden, etc. but there is only this one big park, right next to the country club.
There's a small cafe near the entrance. Plan on at least an hour to walk around and enjoy the greenery and some interesting plants. This is not a real botanical garden, but some of the more interesting plants are labeled. There is also a pretty good cactus and desert plant section over to one side.
Also there's the ruin of the "casa grande" where the American who invented Los Mochis lived. There are photos of what it looked like.
There's also an aviary/greenhouse. Check the times so as not to be disappointed, when planning your visit.
The park is also very close, just down the street from the local museum, so you can easily combine the two. (Museum Book store is worth a browse) Right across the street they are building a big fancy performing Arts center. There are also familiar named family restaurants and fast food right there as well.
Visiting the park, the museum and book store, along with a lunch somewhere along the way would be a great way to spend a morning or afternoon in Los Mochis as part of a trip on the Chepe.
Don't you dare complain there's nothing to do in Los Mochis!

This is the local church of Los Mochis. It is nice, but nothing amazing. I don't consider it a touristic spot.

Plazuela 27 de Septiembre

Reviewed By Felipe Kirov T - Los Mochis, Mexico

It's an excellent place to aproach and learn about local culture; families visit this small garden and plaza to enjoy the refreshing afternoons and nights in Los Mochis downtown specially on weekends, because on those days there are presentations and free shows from local artists, singers and dancers; also you can taste local snacks such as prepared coconuts with a little bit of chili, flavored churros, sweet gorditas and esquites and more...I highly recommend the "orchata de coco", its a cold sweet beverage prepared with the coconut water and sweet rice flavor combined with small little coconut traces...it's refreshing on the hot summer nights at Los Mochis.

It's a small museum, near the botanical garden. There are some petroglyphs on view, and a big outdoor map. The building dates back to the time of the "American Colony". The book store is definitely worth a browse.

This mall has everything, even a movie theater. You can find stores like Mac, Bath & Body, Sally, etc. My family and I had a great time. The little ones had fun playing in this arcade across the food court, myself included. Parking isn't free but the fee is not that bad. The stores look clean, nice and organized.

I was here for a 15 and under world baseball tournament and despite teams from Argentina playing Cuba or Hong Kong playing Lithuania the Los Mochis fanaticos came out to watch and to party. It's a great atmosphere for a game with a pretty back drop. I didn't enjoy sitting outside in 100 degrees, but that won't be a problem when you come watch the winter league team, the Los Mochis Cananeros, which I suggest you do

Este pueblo esta a unos 15 min en carretera de la ciudad de Los Mochis, ahí se puede encontrar un gran legado indígena que se ha mantenido durante siglos y a pesar de la conquista española. Si te gusta el contacto con la cultura viva, este es buen sitio.
