Mazatlán is one of my favorite cities on the planet, so I wanted to learn more about what was just around the outskirts of town. Personally, I think there is no better way to do this than to book a tour. Whenever Trevor and I are trying to get our bearings in a new place, we always book local tours, so we can learn about the area.
Sure, you can always head out on your own, but you never learn as much as when you have a guide take you through everything and answer any questions you might have.
I had heard through the grapevine that a tour company in Mazatlán offered a really cool combo tour that included a boat ride through the mangroves, a peek into the jungle, and an afternoon on a quiet beach.
If you are looking for the perfect day trip around Mazatlán, look no further. Here is my full review of King David’s ‘Jungle Escape at Stone Island’
