Mazatlan’s Features and History

       Mazatlán is a city in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico. It is located on the Pacific coast. It is only a car-ferry ride across the sea of Cortez to Lapaz, the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula.  Mazatlán, with a population of over 500,000 is the second-largest city in the state and Mexico’s largest commercial port with plans for growth to compete with Panama Canal. Also, Mazatlán’s General Rafael Buelna International airport is only 15 KM from El Ariss 620.

Mazatlán offers all the conveniences and comforts of the North American life style, yet it preserves the Mexican culture and history. Conveniences include major retail stores such as Walmart and hardware store such as Home depot. Office Depot and supermarkets are conveniently located and offer the goods for daily needs. Also, Sharp Hospital is located only minutes from the populated area and offers the necessary medical services by English speaking staff.  More North American services are planned to accommodate the ongoing growth of the city. Construction of major resorts and luxury residential condominiums is evident all over the coastal areas to accommodate the North American Baby Boomer’s demand for vacation and retirement homes. Condominiums are pre-sold even prior to ground breaking. A new highway from the airport to the resort areas is under construction to cut the ride to less than fifteen minutes.

Mazatlán is a Nahuatl word meaning “place of the deer”. The city was founded in the 1820s. By the mid-1800s, a large group of immigrants had arrived from Germany. These new citizens developed Mazatlán into a thriving commercial seaport, importing equipment for the nearby gold and silver mines. It served as the capital of Sinaloa from 1859 to 1873. They also influenced in the music, Banda, which is an alteration of Bavarian folk music.

Every year, Mazatlán celebrates “Carnival” which is considered the third largest Mardi Gras in the world, behind the celebrations held in Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans. It is celebrated during the week before Ash Wednesday. There are a lot of festivities, including the election of a Queen, parades, and balls. The Parades march along Avenida del Mar’s 10 kilometers stretch of the recently refurbished promenade fronting the ocean.

Mazatlán is blessed with warm tropical weather.  In the summer it gets a little warm by some standards. There is a strong possibility of afternoon rain during the summer, starting in July.  Usually the rain lasts for a few hours after which the air is clean and the humidity drops.  Sometimes the rain lasts through the night.
