This past Memorial Day Weekend, we took Boy Pop to Mazatlan. It was the first time we've taken him with us on one of our Mexico vacations and we all had a ball! It was a quick trip (3 nights), but we managed to pack lots of fun and relaxation into every second.
Mazatlan is on the west coast of Mexico, just north of Puerto Vallarta, and pretty much directly across the Sea of Cortez from Cabo San Lucas.
The resort was easily the most lush, green, and beautiful resort we've ever visited in the country. The seas were calm-ish and we had no fears of large riptides or undertoes (sp?) (of course, we only waded out to our knees, but still!). The swimming pool was salt water, too, so my hair was grateful.
I really cannot wait to go back and do some more exploring. We made one effort to go into town and visited both Old Town Mazatlan and the Golden District. We searched for a restaurant that Dr Pop's mother had visited about 42 years ago and while we had confirmation that it was indeed still there, we were unable to find it. But we did get to ride in a cab that is unique to Mazatlan. A pulmonia. It's an open air taxi built on a Volkswagen frame. Highly dangerous! But not hot at all since we had all that wind blowing at us.
