Mazatlan

We took a guided tour of Mazatlan to see some of the countryside and experience the rich Mexican culture and history.

Above you will see the Papantla Flyers that were just amazing to see. I took a short video for you of the show that we saw in a small outdoor theater.

Our tour also took us to see the colonial villages where we saw many crafts being made such as...

Pottery:



Handmade Tiles:





Adobe Bricks:


Bread:


And the local history and churches:



The day was just amazing and later that night we sailed to Cabos San Lucas which I will show you tomorrow!

Loved seeing the pictures. I'm guessing the bread picture was for your hubby - isn't he the bread baker? Those flyers were very cool - we didn't see them when we were there. Thanks for sharing!
