We stayed again at the Marina pampered by its excellent accommodation, food and staff. Mexico has no welfare system. In Mazatlan alone there are about 500 orphans which are picked up by their Social Services and placed in privately run orphanages. The Salvation Army operates one such home, the Casa Hogar de Ninos. It looks after thirty two abused, neglected...

“We prefer a room high up and between the pools for quietness as we want to have the balcony door open for fresh air, rather than use the air conditioner. Tip the maid. They do a good job and are very pleasant and appreciative. There are not enough shaded chairs, so claim yours early in the morning. Cab fares are reasonable to stores and downtown Mazatlan for elegant restaurants. A free shuttle takes you to the big El Cid complex about 1 1/2 miles south in the heart of the 'Golden Zone'.”
