San Blas

sunny 40 °C

Hello!

As some of you might know the Pacific coast of Mexico has been hit by a couple of tropical hurricanes lately. We have been trying to avoid the winds and rain and have been spending quite some time on buses going south lately. Therfore we haven't been able to blog for a while, also we're lazy...

From Mazatlan we got a bus to San Blas.

Here we rented a cabaña om the beach for four days, and half of the time we were the only ones there

Jason was planning to get some surfing done, but with the storms coming the waves grew a little too big for his liking

San Blas is a fairly small town, and in the low season there aren't many travellers around. We both enjoyed our time in this little sleepy beach town, and didn't miss the constant noise of Mazatlan.
The hostel we stayed at let us use their bikes for free, which saved us some cab money, but most importantly provided a much needed cool breeze.

As I mentioned we had to leave San Blas in sort of a hurry to get away from the storms, and from here we went to Zihuatanejo, meaning we would miss a couple of spots on the way. We´ll be back with more pictures from Zihua in not too long :)

Mazatlan

First stop

Welcome to our travel blog!

We left Canada well over a week ago, and flew in to Mazatlan, a city about halfway down the Mexican Pacific coast.

The Pacific coast of Mexico apparently gets ridiculously hot from September to November, and it was way too hot for the two of us in Mazatlan (no, we´re not complaining..). After spending two days in this touristy city we got on the bus to San Blas, a smaller city a couple of hours south of Mazatlan. We´ll post pictures later :)
