Yes, that’s a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, but every time I see yet another video or article about how great Mazatlán is, I think of it. I’d love it if Maz would just continue working on making itself a better place to live and to visit and tourism will take care of itself. I do think that our new tourism secretary Francisco Córdova Celaya is doing a good job, and the city continues to make improvements that we all appreciate.
Here are a few of the places Mazatlán has been in the news over the last week or so:
CNN: A short video titled “Mexican City Makes a Comeback“
Travel Secrets Mexico: A 30 Minute TV Show on Mazatlán
San Francisco Examiner: An article titled “Mazatlán’s Crown Jewel, the Plazuela Machado“
Mazatlán also hosted our first cruise ship in quite a while last week, with a couple more expected in December. We’re seeing lots more Durango license plates here in town, too… I think everyone is curious to see how the new Mazatlán-Durango highway impacts the city. A few weeks ago we also had the cast and crew of the TV show The Gator Boys here in town filming and the expectation is that there’ll be 2-3 episodes from Mazatlán possibly in February.
I hope you all are enjoying fall wherever you are… here in Mazatlán the weather has finally broken and we are all enjoying the cooler temperatures. Cool for us is around 80 – 85 F during the day and from 65 – 70 F at night. Perfect!
