Mazatlan Jan. 27 – 29, 2016
We have been to Mazatlan before, but many years have passed since our last visit. The population and size of the city has more than doubled. On our first evening we were bussed over to the El Cid Hotel to enjoy a Mexican Fiesta dinner and show. The food was delicious and the entertainment great.
Our next day Larry joined 8 others for a morning of deep sea fishing and the balance of our group had a city tour. The drivers were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Following our tour we lunched at the Playa Bruja .
The next morning we had a full day country bus tour to La Noria and El Quelite including a stop at an artisan leather shop. Following lunch was a stop at a rooster breeder of cock fighters. This was not a highlight for Anne (see pic). That evening we joined our good friends Paul and Gwen Ysselmuiden for dinner on the beach.
