Attractions of Sinaloa

MAZATLAN

Mazatlan is one of the most beautiful and industrious municipalities in the state of Sinaloa, displaying beaches with fine white sands, no doubt the perfect excuse to take a break and enjoy the setting along with a delicious shrimp or scallop cocktail.

Olas Atlas is a peaceful beach with a particular characteristic, as the sand and stones
here found tend to move from one edge of the beach to the other, a rare episode that has turned this site into something of a myth.

In Los Pinos beaches, surfers catch spectacular waves; fresh fish brought to the shores by boatmen is highly disputed along Playa Norte beach; while Playa Sabalos-Cerritos, still quite virgin and very exotic as well, is the perfect place to enjoy splendid sunsets. However, the most popular beaches are those of Playa Gaviotas and Playa Camaron, both of international renown and in fact commonly credited as the places which triggered and encouraged the construction of the very best hotels and recreational infrastructure along the Sinaloa coasts.

SINALOA
This municipality blends natural beauty with the architectonic legacy of formidable colonial buildings constructed by missionaries of the Jesuit order involved in the task of evangelization. Sport fishing can be practiced on the Gustavo Diaz Ordaz reservoir; the medicinal hot waters found in the natural springs of Agua Caliente de Cota and Agua Caliente de Cebada allow for a more relaxing experience; while numerous mysterious stone-glyphs can be admired in Mapiri.

ISLA DE PIEDRA
Meaning stone island and located south of Mazatlan, hosts colorful birds such as toucan, parakeet and parrot, and also offers the option of simply walking along the endless and almost virgin beaches. For those inclined towards a little more action, the island is home to the largest golf compound in northwestern Mexico, and also offers
the option of renting jet-skis, surf-boards and banana-boats.

SANTA MARIA BAY
The largest bay in all of Sinaloa, ideal for boat trips which may include the company of dolphins, which sometimes like to swing along. The bay is surrounded by no less than 153 islands, and hosts a hundred or so bird species. One of the options for docking along the boat trips is found in Altamura, a place rich in mangrove swamps and sand dunes. And finally, the open sea, just a couple of kilometers away, offers the possibility of a good fishing day, where the catch may include sail-fish, mahi-mahi, swordfish and marlin.

RESERVE OF THE CHARPA PINTA
Home to an endemic black and white bird from the municipality of Concordia, it was created as a response to the growing social concern with the conservation and preservation of natural resources; this reserve is the result of a joint effort between the cooperative community of El Palmito and the financing of the federal government.
