A few weeks ago Mike and I, along with his parents and Dyan and Mark went to Mazatlan to celebrate Dave and Debbie's 30th Anniversary and enjoy a few days of sun and sand. We rented a beach side townhouse, complete with a pool right out the back door, and spent 10 days relaxing and exploring the town of Mazatlan.
"Gold Zone" markets, hiking the hill to check out the El Faro lighthouse (one of the world's highest lighthouses) with a rewarding view of the surrounding city, the tasty food of local sea-side diners, visiting the "Shrimp Ladies", lounging at "Pedro y Lola's" while enjoying the live music in Plaza Machado, visiting the exquisite Immaculate Conception Cathedral, browsing the Mercado Pino Suarez where they butcher entire cow carcasses on the spot in the market aisles and of course enjoying the beaches, swimming, suntanning and laying about.
Check out the pics below for a photo tour of our vacation:
