The Torres Mazatlan is a timeshare, but don't let that keep you from staying here. The condos are well-appointed and large, with full kitchens and comfortable furnishings. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is perfectly acceptable, even if the prices are slightly higher than you might find elsewhere. They offered live music with Sunday brunch when we were here -- karaoke saxophone, not too loud. The grounds also include a laundry, a limited convenience store, a gym, and a few other amenities.
The location is not great, but it isn't bad either. The hotel sits in the middle of a long stretch -- maybe over three miles -- of beach. Surrounding it is mostly condominiums, plus a couple of other hotels. There are not a lot of dining or shopping options within close walking distance of the resort. If you don't mind walking two miles along the beach, you can reach the Bruja or other restaurants to the north.
On the other hand, there is excellent -- inexpensive and regular -- bus service that runs past the hotel to the old town, the Zona Dorado, and other locations. We were not there long enough to go to the Mega or other supermarkets, but the bus goes past, and it would be easy to provision your own condo with food.

... the town's economy was really hurt, and their government promised better protection.
The cliff divers were in an area where there were many aggressive merchants selling their wares. Ron forgot his hat, and he just happened to be in the market for a new one. He talked the merchant down from $15 to $4.
We ended the tour in a local restaurant that served a complimentary drink and chips with salsa. One of the servers made hats out ...
... and the main attraction, which was an underwater statue of the Virgin Mary! The big news was the hookah. It was easy to use and looked to us like it will be a better fit for us on Winterhawk than traditional SCUBA tanks.
Jaltemba is noted for the vendors selling "seafood on a stick" along its long sandy beach. We took a several hour break after the dive to rest up for our next adventure. At about 1700 we all piled into the two dinghies and headed ...
... lure right off the bat, thinking we are cruising the best fishing grounds in North America, the islands off of Baja. I pulled in seaweed over and over again. There were lots of flying fish doing their skipping- soaring- crashing- back- into- the- sea- thing, but only the occasional dolphin sighting. We would see large areas in the distance that would be teaming with fish, birds and dolphin, apparently feasting, but we continued on with only these distant ...
Just accommodation for now...........
Whilst here I stayed at Hotel Del Rio, Benito Juarez No. 2410, Tel: 01 (669) 9824430. This was located at the heart of Mazatlan's old town and was by far the best budget hotel to stay in town and the most popular place to stay among backpackers. The spotless en-suite rooms were well maintained and had cable TV and free purified water. The down side is that the rooms ...
... not be telling them that we are going home to Canada for Christmas because they obviously don't understand that concept. The weather remains sunny and dry, no rain for 3 weeks, Eve finally has sloughed off the green growing in her corners and our clothes finally smell fresh. You are probably thinking that we will be ready for the trash heap when we get home but nothing could be further from the truth. We have truly experienced the ups ...
