Whale watching 

The humpback whale watching season in Mazatlán began on December 8 and will end on March 31, 2023, so for this long weekend reserving seats for observation may be a good idea. 

This migratory season is one of the most impressive natural wonders, as visitors witness the various songs that the whales emit and dance underwater to attract potential mates.  

Regarding the tours, prices range between $1,500 adults and $1,000 children. Onca Exploraciones and Get your Guide are the most popular in the port.  

El Caimanero 

Playa el Caimanero, is one of the best beaches in Sinaloa, this because they are really open sea beaches, with many virgin areas. Therefore, it makes it a very good option to visit the next weekend. 

What to do there? You can camp on the beach or ride a 4×4 motorcycle through the sand. Another very good option is to take a walk to end with some delicious seafood.
