Playa-Brujas-Feb2016

Final days in Mazatlán

We have spent a lovely week in Mazatlán doing boat jobs, going for walks and kayak rides and visiting our favourite restaurants.

We have had the diesel engine serviced by Rafa’s Boat Services.  He has looked after our engine since we first came back to Mazatlán in 2013 and have been very happy with his work. We had Hector from Tony’s Boat Management clean the deck and hull. And Ruben changed out our zincs and cleaned our propeller. So Snowaway is ready to sail to La Paz.

We also saw lots of iguanas of all sizes and colours. Iguanas Feb2016

We visited Zab Thai in the Gold Zone for Thai food (they actually have tofu!), Restaurant Las Palmas on the malecón for pescado zarandeado, La Tramoya on Plaza Machado for spinach crepes, Mr. Lionos on Playa Brujas for lunch, Topolo’s in Centro Historico for mango margaritas, Fat Fish in the Gold Zone for the bar-be-que ribs, Gus-Gus at the marina for the shrimp.

Today we will be checking out of Mazatlán and preparing for departing on Saturday morning. We will be out of internet range for the next few days.

  1. The American Oystercatcher is quite common in Mazatlan although we don’t see it many other places. It likes to eat oysters (hence its name) as well as mussels and clams so they are wherever oysters/clam/mussels can be found. The docks in marinas often promote mussel growth so that is why we get to see these colourful birds!
