So I have been to Mexico a couple of times in my life. I am thinking I want the full-on experience someday, not just a day or two. They seem to have a great list of things to do all year long. Mazatlán is one place I am thinking about. I can not go this year, but you should see what they have going on this fall…
Mazatlán, known as the Pearl of the Pacific, is a budget-friendly, year-round beach destination with a Colonial District that has over 400 years of history. This fall, the city has a calendar of events that includes the Mazatlán Cultural Fest, the Day of the Dead Celebration, and the Mazatlán Bike Tour.
