There is a wetland nature reserve at the north end of
Mazatlán called the Estera del Yugo. If you'ld like to
learn more about the
dry jungle or just spend a few hours away from the beach
and the trinket shops, you should arrange a visit. We visited
earlier this year, and
for your entertainment pleasure, we went equipped with a camera. The men in the family
will definitely like this for two reasons: 1) Admission is free,
and 2) There is nothing to buy. You're not totally off the hook
though, for donations are needed and gratefully accepted.
You've already bought chachkas at most of the souvenier stores in
the golden zone. Then you went to El Centro for shoes and the
mercado and came away with a suitcase full of T-shirts. Next you
were off to the Gran Plaza to spend some serious money at Fabrica
de Francia, and to top it off, you make a combination Sam's Club
and Walmart run just to check the prices. Yes, you have a
shopping problem, and do I have a place for you.
Every Sunday you can have a
whole new shopping experience at the
Juarez Flea Market.
In March 2004, my friends Jack and Valerie Moreau, along with
Val's mother and sister, decided to take
a day trip to Copala, with a few stops
along the way. If you find yourself in Mazatlán for a longer
period of time, and what to see what smaller villages are like,
this might just be worth your while.
