Mazatlan on our Sapphire Princess cruise to the Mexican Riviera

Our second stop on this cruise ship review was in the port of Mazatlan Mexico, one of our
favorite destinations.

Mazatlan is a quiet little seaside town catering to tourists, and is known for it's jewelry stores. And Kathy loves to shop for jewelry.  She likes sliver and turquoise which are in plentiful supply.

This photo is of Mazatlan Mexico as seen from our balcony aboard the Sapphire Princess. We seem to be parallel parked and wedged in pretty tight. If you look closely you will see that there are quite a few cruise ships parallel parked along the dock.

Once out on the dock there was no shortage of Taxi cabs to get us into town. This picture of our Taxi ride does not show the fear in our faces due to the seemingly reckless cab ride. Traffic was heavy on the way into town.

Look at all the buses...must be from all those parallel parked cruise ships. Just Kathy standing on the sidewalk. This mall is supposed to lead to the beach.

This is a shot of the beach as seen from the window of a cafe where we stopped for a beer.  (It was a very hot day).   Just a street scene in Mazatlan...not sure why I took this picture. While in the cafe watch out the window we could see the large para-sailing operation going on.  Kathy wanted to try para-sailing.

What Kathy wants Kathy gets. Here she is suited up for her para-sailing adventure. A good activity for my cruise review of the Sapphire Princess. There she goes...They told me $1.00 to take her up, and $20.00 to get her back.  I was tempted to save some money. Ho hum...waiting for her to get back...where the heck did they go? Ensanada?

Wait...there she is.  They brought her back and it cost me $20. Catching a Taxi back to the ship...not all that easy. Our visit to Mazatlan Mexico is over.
