Mazatlan.- Carnival figures are admired by tourists and Mazatlecos alike. Allegoric creatures alluding to the American Continent have started to appear, for the amusement of locals and visitors.

Motorists who pass in front of the images take the opportunity of a selfie or a video, so as pedestrians that walk along the boardwalk.

Staff from the Department of Culture in Mazatlan, with the help of a crane, are in charge of placing the decorations on the Malecon. On Costa Del Mar the figure that represents the country of Costa Rica, was placed with the legend “Pura Vida” a common expression in that country.
