Sailing in Mazatlan

There is just something about being out on the water in a sailing boat that makes letting go of a persons cares and worries so much easier to do. No matter where it is that you are floating on the water in a wind powered craft, the sound of the wind in the sails and the water gently tapping on the hull can quickly lull you into a hypnotic trance and gently carry you away.

Now add to this equation dolphins tagging along beside the boat, as whales breach the surface out in the distance against the backdrop of the pristine rocky coastline of the Mexican Riviera and that is sailing in Mazatlan Bay. Witnesing the splendour of a golden sunset from the deck of a sailboat is within easy reach during your stay in this vacation paradise.
