It’s a Winter Wonderland

December 18, 2017

Winter is so lovely here in Mazatán!  We enjoy walking every morning although with all the construction on the malecón North of the Fisherman’s Monument we have moved our walk more South.  

The new walking surface of the malecón is lovely and the views are wonderful as always.  There is some controversy in town about the vendors at the cliff divers being removed against their will but I love being able to walk through in the morning and not smell spilled beer and worse!  I believe they are being relocated to the new Sister City Park being built at Zaragoza and Paseo Claussen. 

The first photo above (use the arrow keys) is from our walk this morning.  You can see the new sculptural looking white shade cloth that is part of the new park that replaced the skate park.  The other, bigger shade cloth is the existing one over the basketball and Zumba area.  The new park has had lots of new exercise equipment installed on the water side and there are more shade structures being installed too.  I expect it will be done fairly soon.

The second picture is of the amazing sky early Sunday morning. Gorgeous!  

The third photo above is the newly replanted Calle Angel Flores. It just looks lovely with some giant palms (they are still tied up) on the South side and all the hibiscus, bougainvillea and smaller palms on the North. There are blooming flower baskets hanging from the new light posts, too.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays wherever you are!

    1. My family will not be here for Christmas, but they arrive three weeks later for my birthday. I hope you have a marvelous holiday.

    1. Is this information factual about the vendors or just here say, after all the work going Into this park I can’t see them allowing them to be in there so it can look like the melacon did with garbage and and foul odours. The city needs to be educated on cleanliness, very sad the melacon was just completed and already it is stained with food and gum and awful odours. I realize a lot of people are upset about vendors being removed, including the vendors as this has been a tradition for many years and their livelihood , but there has to be a better solution. Mazatlán is a beautiful city and the people here are amazing, but cleanliness should be their top priority, it’s very sad that it isn’t important , it’s not only tourists it’s the residents of Mazatlán also, pretty sad when you are watching the pulmonías and red trucks driving around with music cranked and customers are throwing glass and garbage on the streets. They should make the drivers responsible and pay a fine, if their customers are caught doing it, but then again who’s watching them.
