It’s a Winter Wonderland

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...

A Walk on Mazatlán’s Malecon

This summer is going to be the summer of getting in shape for me.  I wasn’t able to work out a lot while I was having chemotherapy, and I realized recently that I had lost a fair bit of strength in my muscles.  So it is time to really get to work!

I love being out when the malecón is full of exercisers – people are walking with weights,  jogging, running, skating, and biking.  There are fewer hazards –  inattentive children with little dogs...

Semana Santa in Mazatlán

I love living in a place where people are always so happy. I think Semana Santa is the happiest time of all for Mazatlán visitors. People come from near and far to enjoy a relaxing springtime vacation here. The weather is perfect – between 80 and 85 degrees – and it is beautiful and sunny with a fantastic breeze. Families set up an umbrella or some sort of shade and spend the entire day on the beach. We went for...
