Mazatlán (8:00 AM–5:00 PM)

Combine a first-class beach resort with a city that has an illustrious, colonial past and you have Mazatla´n. Founded in 1531, the city was developed into a thriving commercial seaport by German immigrants who arrived mid-19th century.

Tour Rating:

Very pleased with our Tour Director and Bus Driver. She was very pleasant and never communicated negatively. She went out of her way to help anyone who needed help with whatever. She communicated an enthusiasm as she gave us information on our tour. The bus driver proved bottled water, which was appreciated. He also was very pleasant. They both made our tour part of the trip more enjoyable. This was my 4th trip with YMT and she was the best tour director I've had. This lady loves what she does and this is infectious..
