“La Mujer Delfín” (Dolphin Lady) at Carpa Olivera is a bronze mermaid on the Malecón at Mazatlán on the west coast of Mexico. She was created by Argentinian sculptor Rodrigo Becerra Rodríguez in 2004. map
Originally Carpa Olivera was the name given to a seaside restaurant and bar opened by Antonio Olivera in 1914, featuring a saltwater pool below the restaurant.
It quickly became famous, and was extremely popular until 1957, when it was badly damaged by Hurricane Twelve, forcing Olivera to close the business that year. He kept the saltwater pool however, and it has remained there ever since.
It has now been a public pool for generations. The mermaid statue was added in 2004, and the entire saltwater pool was renovated and upgraded in 2015 with a water slide, fountain, stairs, new changing rooms and restrooms.
The mermaid statue here is one of many great sculptures on the Malecón at Mazatlán, including also the Reina de los Mares mermaid about 400 meters to the north.
