What we do know is our first destination will be Mazatlan. It is about 1000 miles south of Phoenix and takes about 16 hours to reach by car. We were able to find a good deal at a beachfront condo for a few weeks there, so we decided it would be a good place to decompress after many long tedious days working on the house.
