The hotel is only about 5 minutes from the bus station and maybe 15 min from the train station.
Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is friendly.

In a 'little' while, a young man appears from ...
... as it was like a billion degrees or something. Conveniently, we found a bus company that ran buses to Tucson Arizona, which was where we were hoping to go next.
The other random thing is that there would appear to be NO bars or even cafes in Los Mochis! Well, there were these swing-door bars that looked like women wouldn't really be welcome in them, or that the music would grind to a halt or something if we ventured within... In the end we went to a supermarket in ...
... br> Somehow we awoke from our sleep of the dead to get up and have a walk around Los Mochis. Pretty drab place overall but with one redeeming quality in the leafy public square with a large and well attended colonial church at one end. Here we sampled another Mexican oddity.
Fresh coconut, hacked open with a machete, the milk poured out into a plastic bag and handed to you with a straw. The ...
