Upon our return to Queretaro, we didn't head to 'our rented Home', but rather to Shelley's HOME B and B. She kindly let us keep our bigger suitcases in one of her closets while we headed up to Mazatlan with our backpacks, and then to the Copper Canyon. We will return to Shelley's place for a weekend before heading home to Canada.

So we finally made it to mainland Mexico by arriving in Mazatlan last Friday. We left Cabo San Lucas on Wednesday (Thanksgiving Eve) with our sights set on celebrating Thanksgiving in Los Frailes, which was a day's sail northeast but still on Baja. Los Frailes is the eastern most point of Baja, and hence the most common jumping off point for making the ~180 nautical mile sail across the Sea of Cortez to Mazatlan, but the anchorage is remote, with the only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Captain Moe's Bed & Breakfast Mazatlan
Welcomed? You bet!
I had the great pleasure of spending a week with Captain Moe & Dorothy in August 2004. It was my first trip to Mazatlan, and I went on my own - a somewhat daunting prospect for a single woman. Not only was their home a peaceful oasis to which I gratefully retreated after a busy, fun-filled day of toodling around Mazatlan, but they took me under their wing and arranged for me to meet interesting friends (expats & locals). These warm, generous people opened up the doors to "inside" Mazatlan, and I am grateful for the wonderful sights and experiences I had, that I expect most tourists would not know about. I fell in love with the town and its people, and I believe that staying with Captn Moe & Dorothy played a big part in that.
And so the Mexican Proverb goes...
"No la Chifles que es Cantada" Don't Whistle What Should be Sung. Cheers to singing the praises of, and appreciation for finding such a wonderful, humble, hospitable Bed and Breakfast made special by the giving spirits of Capt. Moe and Dorothy.
Agree about Captain Moe's being great!
We haven't visited Captain Moe's for two years, and are happy to hear that they are still providing an excellent experience for visitors to Mazatlan. We hope to return soon. The breakfasts were outstanding, and Zoe a great companion for a late afternoon session with a book.
Just got back from Mazland and a great stay with Dorothy and Moe at Captain Moe's. This is an amazing place to stay and it made our vacation. In a town full of tourist trap hotels and pushy timeshare salesmen, this B&B was a tranquil oasis where we could truly rest and relax. Upon arrival we were greeted by Zoe the little terrier and Moe. He (Moe) kindly helped us with our bags and offered us a drink which we were glad to accept. We sat and chatted a bit in their open courtyard decorated with Mexican crafts, plants other fixutres. It is in this courtyard that we had breakfast everyday, consisting of eggs, bagels, fresh fruits, cereal and/or yogurt. Coffee, juice, milk, and teas were also provided. They would willingly follow any dietary constraints/requests guests had as well. They also sold soda and beer for $1. By Mazatlan standards, that is very cheap.
The place to be
If you are planning a vacation south of the border, this is the place to stay. Great location, great accommodations and downright economical.
You will be treated as family, like no where else.

Had a Great Time
We loved our stay with Capt. Moe and Dorothy. It was the perfect place for my wife and I to visit. So comfortable and we felt like special guests and part of their extended family. Loved their pets too. We had a great time.
We love Captain Moe's
A wonderful B & B. We have made Captain Mo's a must stop on our trips to and from the US from our home in Mexico. On each of the 5 or 6 visits with Moe and Dorothy, (and Zoey, the Jack Russell terrier) we have been welcomed as family. We find Capt. Moe's offers all those things that make a B & B a wonderful stay; Charming hosts, an opportunity to meet guests, relaxing surroundings, and an almost unbelievable generous and delicious breakfast.
And all for a price far less than most of the hotels in the area. We strongly recommend it.

I stayed with Doe and Moe about three years ago and had a WONDERFUL time. They were great hosts and we spent lots of time going places and seeing things. I walked to the beach quite easily from the house. The B & B is located close to the shops and restaurants, all within walking distance, but far enough away so that if peace is what you are looking for, you have that too.
I loved my visit and they made it much more enjoyable. I would love to visit again and plan to as soon as I can.
Two words, STRESS and VACATION, are significantly separate in every dictionary; yet all too often, they combine forces to spell out NIGHTMARE for travelers abroad. Faced with choices ranging from large resorts to budget motels, and armed with guidebooks galore, often it is the personal connection that changes the way you are able to "see" where you have landed. Individual experience inspires the foolproof plan, where time, pace and costs are under your control, resulting in a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation, while offering a true flavor of local climate.
Our family has made Captain Moe's Posada our home base for two trips to Mazatlan. This comfortable Bed and Breakfast is just 3 blocks from the beaches of the Golden Zone, but can feel miles away from the touristy side of Mazatlan. To say Captain Moe and his wife Dorothy make you feel like a part of the family is an understatement. Returning on our second visit felt like we were arriving at the home of a favorite aunt and uncle. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts in the flower filled courtyard with the sounds of birds are memorable.We felt very safe in our surroundings which made us all the more comfortable to get out and explore the 'real' Mazatlan. Our hosts offered a wealth of ideas and good practical advice that allowed us to see parts of Mazatlan we would never have known if we were staying in a big box resort. The trade-offof not being on the beach is more than worth it! We would not hesitate to recommend Captain Moe's to anyone traveling to Mazatlan, Mexico.
