Mazatlán – A place of rich tradition and culture

Melissa V.From the moment we arrived in Mazatlán, you could already see such rich tradition and culture.  This place has it all, shopping, dining and the beach!  It was nice waking up in the morning, hearing the birds, and taking a walk on the beach listening to the sounds of the ocean. So relaxing!

The weather was fantastic when I was there. It was sunny every day. While we were there we took a ride in a Pulmonia, which is an open air taxi (looks almost like an extended golf cart). We took them around the Malecón and the taxi driver was awesome. He played the music we wanted and pointed out all the happening spots in town and let us know the meaning behind the statues that were displayed.

The food was amazing! We ate at a place called Pedro & Lola’s. They  have amazing seafood… mouthwatering shrimp that were huge! I can still taste that bacon and cheese stuffed shrimp.  I loved the wide variety of fresh seafood they offer. If you are visiting Mazatlán, you should definitely check this place out.

Mazatlán was an amazing experience. A lot of culture, excellent food (especially seafood), and friendly people. I can’t wait to go back and share this experience with my husband!

My first trip to Cabo

Melissa V. - North America Vacation TripsI hope you enjoyed seeing the great photos from RCI subscribing members who visited Cabo. Before we end the week, I wanted to take a chance to tell you about my first trip there.

When I first landed in Cabo, I was amazed by the beauty. I was surprised at how many mountains there were and stunned by the gorgeous views.  We started our journey in San Jose Del Cabo, a beautiful town that is very quiet and perfect for relaxation.  It’s got somewhat of a “Beverly Hills” feel; lots of celebrities have houses here.  On one side you have the desert, mountains, and cacti; and on the other side you have beautiful beaches. There are several resorts there to choose from and several places to shop.

If you like a party atmosphere or are more of a social person, then Cabo San Lucas is your place. There is a big mall and a lot of little flea markets for shopping, several great restaurants, and an enormous amount of night life…one place I recommend for a fun time is Cabo Wabo. It’s a great club, where you can dance the night away.

And don’t forget about the whale watching, marlin fishing, ATV tours, surfing, and snorkeling! I highly recommend visiting Cabo. I’m so glad I did and I can’t wait to return!
