    March 13, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    First day of our Copper Canyon adventure began with a 7 hour journey through the states of Nayarit and Sinaloa, passing through areas of fertile farms of sugarcane, mangoes, tobacco, tomatoes, pineapples, aguave and sorghum.

    Mazatlan with its population of 600,000 is twice the size of Puerto Vallarta. It’s the second busiest port in Mexico and is well know for its shrimp and tuna.

    A mode of transportation unique to Mazatlan is the “pulmonia” an open taxi.

    The Malecon here is around 20+ km long, compared to the 1.6 km one in PV, one of the longest seafront walkways in the world.

    We had dinner with friends of Linda’s. Doug & Eileen stay 4 months in Mazatlan.

He came to the ferry terminal expecting to collect 4 people that he would host, but was surprised to find 8 cyclists all in need of a place to stay. In true Mexican can-do style, he collected his wits after counting how many there were of us, and launched into finding a solution to host all of us in his tiny appartment. "You can all fit, but it will be tight! If it doesn't bother you, it doesn't bother me" he said. So we rode through the city like a critical mass bike ride, and along the Malecon to his place in the centre of the city. His appartment was on the 4th floor, so while some of us carried our bikes and gear up the stairs, Karl rigged up a hoisting system (i.e. him and our bear hang rope) to pull bags up to the appartment. With bags and bikes strewn around the appartment and patio next door, we shared food, beer and laughs in good company. We really enjoyed our short stay with Abel, and were sad to leave so soon the next day, but the Pacific coast of Mexico was calling us to come explore it...Read more
