Mazatlan is a resort town off the Pacific Shoreline of Sinaloa. It is known for its beautiful weather and sunny beach, that runs approximately 21 kilometers long. It was founded on May 15 of 1531, and still to this day continues to bring half a million tourists and visitors every year during the summer season. Although, overall, what’s the true reality of experiencing Mazatlan and the things to do there?
Senior, Hugo Guzman, experienced the true reality of it during the summer of 2021.
“We drove all the way down to El Paso, where we took a plane to Uriangato,” he said when asked on his trip to Mexico.
He and his family stayed there in Uriangato for about a week, then they took about a 20 hour bus ride all the way to Mazatlan. Hugo and his family originally took the trip to visit family in Uriangato, where they then decided to take a trip to Mazatlan to expand their stay and provide more fun! They started at a beach view resort called Hotel Riu Emerald Bay. Which provided beach access, pools, and places to eat all in one.
They enjoyed their time at the beach, enjoying the water, and seeing every attraction on the way to Mazatlan and on their way back to Uriangato, where they spent another week with family!
Additionally, Hugo spent his vacation getting a brand new tattoo on his left forearm stating his favorite bible verse, Philippians 4:13.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Overall, Hugo’s experience in Mexico was truly something that he chooses to remember and go back too! With the time he spent and the family that he saw, he meaningfully chose to make the decision to get a tattoo, which he now loves and enjoys. He strongly recommends to everyone to at least once visit Mazatlan and experience the satisfaction of every sight witnessed in Mazatlan. From food to attractions, it was definitely a trip to forever remember.
