A December 2002 trip
to Mazatlan by merezy
Quote: A stay at the new Pueblo Bonito Resort.
Many activities are available: workout room, massage, sauna, daily activities at the pool, and a deserted beach to walk or suntan. The pacific ocean and two swimming pools with pool bars provide a cooling effect from the warm sun. The hot tub will warm up the cool nights. The staff is very attentive and easily found. Say hi to Marco.

A free hors d'ouevre of fried squid, not fried spider as it would appear, is served. I was reluctant to try it, but it was pleasantly tasty and crunchy and tasted nothing like a spider. Ha Ha Ha. The margaritas and pina coladas were very tasty. The entrees were delicious, from the seafood burrito to the shrimp fajitas. We were told by a local to ask for mango salsa, and when we did a waiter ran out of the building. To our surprise, he graciously brought the salsa from a competing restaurant.
This restaurant is full of suprises even to the end where they bring complimentary kahlua and creams for dessert.

As you travel up into the mountains or hills, you make a roadside visit to a furniture maker. Beautiful chairs, rockers, and love seats are on display. Pottery, silver, and other wood carved trinkets are also displayed. Be wary of large objects because you'll have to carry your purchases.
Two villages are toured: Concordia and Coppola. Both are very quiant and quite old. The local churches are somewhat ornate but have donation boxes for further refurbishments. A wedding was in progess during our visit which was much like the process of American weddings. The bride was beautiful in white and the groom handsome in his tuxedo.
A bakery tour gives you the chance to try the local pastries.
Lunch was traditional Mexican which was quite good.
Children will beg you to purchase their hand carved cities made from tree bark. They are a bargain at 10 Pesos.
