First they took us to a cathedral that was absolutely beautiful! We got to get out and look around inside of it. After visiting the cathedral, we drove through the fish market and saw the giant shrimp. Moving on, we stopped to see the Mazatlan cliff divers who were incredible. You should give them a tip, as they get no salary and have to live off of tips.
After seeing the cliff divers, the tour guide said that he would take us on a "VIP tour". The van climbed up a hill, past the devil’s cave, to the top where we stopped. When we got there, we had an awesome view of the city of Mazatlan. Make sure you bring your camera! Continuing, we stopped at a shop selling antiques, a shop that makes cookies, and a jewelry store. I think they must have a partnership with these stores. They hope that you’ll buy something while you are there.
Our last destination was the opera house. After seeing that, they took us back to our hotel. If was a great tour, and our whole family enjoyed it.
