cakm replied to 2Canucks's topic in Mexican RivieraThe Mazatlan Lighthouse offers great views of the city, the port, the golden zone and the surrounding mountains. Taxis will take you there, but we signed up for a shore excursion and were pleasantly suprised in the nature and history information that the tour guide was able to offer us. She also gave us great tips about other spots in town to visit - as parts of this town are not as tourist friendly as other port cities. The hike is a steady incline on a dirt path and then 300 fairly steep stairs to get to the top. The pay off is great! The views are spectacular and there are lots of iguanas, birds, spiders to see along the way. This is not an advisable trip during the mid-day hot sun. We went on a relatively overcast, cool morning and were were still pretty warm! Don't forget your water bottle!
