My mind has been wandering a lot lately and I can’t help but still daydream about our weekend getaway to Mazatlan with Sun Country Airlines. Here are the top ten photos I captured while on my trip to help encapsulate the constant feeling of wanderlust.
The light in this photo is a dream! It captures random rays of sun cutting through the leaves of the trees that formed a canopy above us on simple walks to and from our hotel room.
This is Geronimo, the director of the Aries Fleet, at the Marina on his private fishing boat. He’s gone fishing every Sunday for the last 7 years and shows no signs of slowing down.
I took this photo near the municipal market. The streets are busy with local traffic, street vendors, pedestrians, and busy sounds. The city truly feels alive near the center of the old town.
Who’s ready for a snack? Street performers showcase varieties of talents including this man and his friendship with the local seagulls.
We went on a quick tour with the Aries fleet and caught some speedboats in action along the way. I’m definitely riding in one of these next time!
Turn basically any corner and see fresh seafood everywhere! Whether it was spotted mackerel, red snappers or buckets of shrimp/clams/oysters, I was in seafood heaven.
Another must-have when I travel abroad is the street food. These tacos were the perfect little snack to keep us going between stops and gave us a chance to catch our breath. And the tacos were absolutely delicious.
The local cliff divers draw lots of crowds of onlookers as these brave souls are a top attraction here in Mazatlan.
Panoramic view of Mazatlan at sunset! What could be better?
I took this shot on the first day shortly after we arrived in Mazatlan. The sunsets were out of this world and every day felt like I was seeing it for the first time.
