A November 1999 trip
to Mazatlan by davilin88
Quote: After vacationing in San Jose del Cabo, we were ready to see more of Mexico. Mazatlan was dissapointing. Though the resort was fine, and good beaches, the city is sprawling and polluted, like Sacramento.
We stayed at the El Moro Tower at El Cid Mega Resort. The resort has a nice beach, in fact, the one good thing we found about the area was the beaches, but the resort was huge, with no really quiet areas by the pool.
The city itself is a sprawling, polluted, ugly place, reminding me very much of Sacramento, CA. We found little to do outside the hotel zone. The one boat trip we took cruising along the coast and then snorkeling at Deer Island was not even that great. The water was murky for snorkeling and the trip itself was not that picturesque. Downtown was just loud and smoggy and not very pretty.
