I have visited many coasts, but the pearl of the Pacific is unique and unrepeatable.

Fire in the water 🔥🌊


Beach Cerritos

It’s my favorite beach, it’s quiet in appearance.

to get: passing the Golden Zone or from Marina takes the Av. Sábalo Cerritos, which meets just with Playa Cerritos; a roundabout will tell you that you have arrived, is located in front of the open sea, Cerritos is a beach of relatively calm waters, thanks to a rocky cove that forms small pools.

The Aquarium of Mazatlán

The Mazatlán Aquarium (Aquario) is one of the largest aquariums in Latin America. There are many exhibitions showing various fish, sea creatures, birds and animals. It also has fabulous regularly scheduled shows, such as a diving show, bird show, sea lion show and animal hunter show. This is a family attraction.

How to get to the Mazatlán Aquarium? You can reach the Mazatlán Aquarium by taxi, transit or walking. It’s a short taxi ride from the Golden Zone, a little more High Waves. The Sabalo Centro bus goes up and down the Avenida del Mar, that is, the Malecón. If you take this bus, get off at the intersection near the Aquarius Hotel.

Diving Show The diving show is where a diver dives into a tank of sharks, piranhas and other fish. The diver interacts with some of the fish.


Malecon of Mazatlán, the longest in the world.

The Malecón de Mazatlán has a length of 21 km. and is considered the longest in the world. The Malecón is composed of 9 sections that go from the area of the Historic Center towards the north of the city. (people do not agree with the amount of km).

  1. Desde  “La Puntilla” hasta el muelle de los Ferrys
  2. El Faro
  3. Paseo del Centenario
  4. Olas Altas
  5. Paseo Claussen
  6. Avenida del Mar
  7. Camarón – Sábalo
  8. Sábalo – Cerritos
  9. Cerritos – Nuevo Mazatlán.

is located in almost the entire extension of the same accompanied by a beach. This is from Olas Altas to Cerritos each beach in Mazatlán is different from each other and even the design of the quay as the section of Olas Altas to the monument to the fisherman looks very different from the new remodeling of it.

I am a girl passionate about life, since I was 18 years old I started the adventure of knowing different places of Mexico and the world, my project is new and focuses on Mexico and take advantage of this beautiful country (details, small key points mean everything to me), once known the majority of the country move towards all Latin America (sometimes to go to other countries from other continents because no, the goal can change I get carried away by the surprises of life). I am restless minded, I like adventure and feeling to discover and see new natural places, I love culture, singing, sports, walking, I love the sea (it is my favorite site), animals, nature (not so much cities although their museums attract me) I’m an engineering student so I love science! I hope you have fun, come out of the cave and enjoy life with its black and white chips always with positivity will be beautiful and charming. I will show you options, part of my experiences to help you a little with my opinion and so you can know sites that you visualize and give you the curiosity to know (you can travel cheaply or as you prefer, the creativity left over) I also give myself my whims and tell you where to go so you can enjoy yourself to the fullest. In my personal blog I tell anecdotes (a very personal form of expression) experiences that are a product of travel.
