Mazatlan as a tourist destination

I was pleasantly surprised by the charm of Mazatlan.. It has so much to offer.. the best part is the price.. for this Canadian girl, there is much to offer for only a few pesos. I really enjoy the people of Mazatlan. So many hardworking, friendly people!!!! The experience of Mazatlan will keep me coming back!!!

details, details

My brother had always said how much they enjoyed Mazatlan and that we would like it too!! What an understatement!!!! We LOVED IT!!! The weather, the prices, and shopping were the icing on the cake.. I also liked to visit the downtown market and the cathederal. There is so much to see.. ..

Another Trip to Mazatlan Coming soon

I have been to Mazatlan mant times. Sometimes I have even managed to swing two trips to my favorite destination. I have been to Copala twice and have been to Stone Island many times also. Mazatlan has so many things to see and do I try something new everytime and still have not done it all!!! One of the latest things I have done is sail on Mi Casa Viejas with Captian Eduardo. It is a pleasant trip and Eduardo knows many things about Mazatlan and the area. I also enjoy Plaza Muchado on Friday and Saturday nights there are many restaurants down there to enjoy and there are Mexican families enjoying the evening with musicians and vendors. So much to do so little time. IN 2011 and 2012 I visited Mazatlan in January and April.
