I’ve traveled to Mazatlan more than a handful of times and enjoyed each adventure. It has become one of my favorite destinations in Mexico. The culture, cuisine, and cervezas are all reasons why, but one of my favorite reasons is truly the people. Yes, I find the people of Mexico and especially Mazatlan warm and hospitable. The magic of the pearl of the Pacific might not be found in oysters but rather in the faces of the locals who call it home.
Little Girl at the Aquarium
Mazatlan life is often based on the sea, so it makes sense they have an Aquarium. Here at the seal show a little girl gets a close-up.
Señor Frog at a Baseball Game
