35-49 year old male
Hi there, as you have already noticed I am based at the Mexican Caribbean a beautifull place full of color and life, wonderfull landscapes, beaches and the extraordinary blue caribbean sea, such a paradise... I was born in Mexico City , i used to live in downtown, pretty close to the place in wich the archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, found the ruins of the Main Temple of the Aztec Civilization. I am a Story Teller, i always knew it, and when someone listen to my words i feel so glad, because i can bring back to the life the magic of the aztecs, the mayas, the ancient cities that grew up in the middle of the jungle, and i can stil hear the roar of the jaguar, the song of the quetzal and i give a new dimention to the motives of the heroes that created our country and left a legacy that now we call History.

Points of Interest & Landmarks
Baluarte Bridge is on a really impressive road which offers breathtaking views along the way. Be sure to have your camera with you and admire each and every little detail of the Sierra Madre mountain range, while crossing one of the highest bridges in the world.
A great place with a gorgeous view of the sea is the El Mirador lookout. Enjoy fish, shrimp taco or the amazing ceviche at the restaurant here while taking in the sunset.
For photographers, Cerro de la Neveria is a must if you want to get a good look at the city from above. Watch the nightlights or observe how the city slowly becomes illuminated when morning comes. It is a really beautiful show of nature.
The Mazatlan Aquarium is a great place for kids and adults alike to admire the variety of wildlife on display in the aquarium, the zoo, and the botanical garden. It is a blast to be part of a show here, and for the little ones to be able to play and learn at the same time. The exhibits are quite interactive and super fun!
Stone Island is a lovely tranquil place to visit by yourself, or with friends or family, and it is also really easy to get to. On the island you can go for a swim, rent a kayak, go horseback riding, or even take a tour in a horse-drawn carriage.
Another must-see for nature lovers, hikers, and photographers is the Cerro Creston hill. At the top you can visit El Faro, one of the highest lighthouses in the world, and take in a truly unique view of the city and the sea.
Playa Sabalo is a quiet beach away from the noise of the hectic city. Here you'll have a nice time soaking under the sun and taking a swim - just be sure to check the flags before going into the sea.
The city square is a great place for a walk, and don't miss the weekly art walk in which local artists display their wares. You'll have the chance to buy some beautiful local art or just take a break and stop at a nice cafe or restaurant. The square is at the heart of the Mazatlan historical district, and is lined by beautiful old buildings.
At the Huana Coa Canopy Adventure there is something for everyone to do, from zip lining and horseback riding to canoeing and ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) tours. The staff at the park are incredibly hard working and will make sure you have the best of times.
A great choice for all is to take a walk along the Malecon boardwalk, admiring the beach or enjoying a parade (if it is the season.) Be prepared to walk a lot!
