Has anyone visted mazatlan recently?

As part of a three-month North American trip, we're visiting Mazatlan, Mexico, for a week. Recently we've become aware of major crime issues. Anyone know the ropes?

Paulie says: I'll let you know, Carol-Lynn. This will be our third visit to Mexico. Previous visits to Tijuana back in '95... and a couple of weeks in Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita in 2008. The US government listed Mazatlan as a no-go zone recently... and cruise ships ceased docking there for some time. Just toured Alaska for a month and we're now enjoying Canada. US and Mexico next. Tough life, but someone has to do it!~ Reply

Paulie says: Can you provide a link for that forecast, Monica? We've googled, but can't find anything which suggests any geological-meteorological events! :D Reply

Paulie says: Back after three months in Alaska, Canada, Lower-48 US, and Mexico. Mazatlan is _not_ Puerto Vallarta, or Sayulita... but it's a huge improvement on Tijuana*. Weather was far too hot. Don't go to Mexico in October. Lots of pros and cons with our third Mexican trip!~

* Isn't any place better???!~ Reply
