A Year In Mazatlan Mexico
I spent more than half of the last 15 months helping with a large construction project for Youth With A Mission Mazatlan.
Mazatlan features some of the nicest beaches on Mexico’s west shore. The weather is very pleasant January through June, but gets quite warm and humid August through September. The people are all very friendly and many speak English. In the older area where the base is, the prices for staying and eating, are very reasonable. A room and a nice old hotel for $40-50 per night. A nice taco dinner or a large slice of pizza and drink for $2, a fine steak or sea food dinner $10.

The tree trimming in Mexico is a bit unusual, but the trees often serve as nice shady carports.
.

Mazatlan has a nice Aquarium and Zoo.
.

Most evenings I would take a stroll along the Malicon (The Sea Walk).
Mazatlan has many nice parks or other attractions to visit along the Malicon.

Since the sea water is usually nice and warm (up to 90 deg) they made a swimming pool right on the beach.

A visit to the Street Taco stand is always great.

To get to Mazatlan one can always fly.
But another great option is the bus. Their buses are far better than anything in the US.
They offer large reclining seats. Movies or games or music or internet on demand on your personal monitor.
You select your free lunch as you enter, and keep it in the refrigerated compartments above your seat.
