Where I stayed
The plant is located in an industrial part of town close to port and from what the guide said, one of the smaller brewery's of the Modelo Corporation. Generally these work like this.... take a tour, learn about how they make beer and then.... head to a tasting room of sorts and get hammered. Being New Years Eve day, the tasting room was in use later on that afternoon so we commenced the tasting before heading out on the tour
After the tour, we boarded a small taxi/pickup truck and took a quick tour of old town Mazatlan with a stop at the boardwalk for a photo opp with the ocean in the background. It turned out, that this was not part of the tour but a little something extra that the tour guide wanted to show us since our stay in Mazatlan was just limited to the day. After all the photos were taken of the boardwalk and cliff divers (not as spectacular as the ones in Acapulco, but crazier as they jump into five feet of water) we headed back to the ship where I changed and headed out for my next adventure..... the beach!
The beaches of Mazatlan were very wide compared to the ones I had just visited in PV. Fortunately it was low tide which added a little extra width to the consistently soft sand that laid in front of all the hotels in town. Starting from the Hotel de los Flores I walked along the beach for about 20 minutes before reaching a spot just short of the El Cid hotel that looked like a great place to lay my towel down and catch a nap.
