Good way to start off a tour, just kicking back on a wall overlooking the sea.
 

Lighthouse

 

Like Cabo, nice rock formations in the water.

 

Church of the Immaculate Conception

 
In the pictures below, you see the altar which is dominated by a statue of the Virgin Mary, who is flanked by statues of her parents. Sunlight streaming in through high windows illuminates Dad at about 11:15 in the morning, and Mom (St Ann) at about 1:15 in the afternoon.
Large, beautiful chandelier.  Our guide said this was the largest chandelier in all of, um, I don't remember.
This was much fancier than the church in Cabo San Lucas.
 

 

The picture above and to the right is St. Joseph.

 

The front doors.

 

Cliff Diver:

 

It's not Acapulco, but there was a cliff diver in Mazatlan, who worked for tips only. 

The diver seemed to be waiting for the signal from a guy standing near us; he was either a marine biologist or a talent scout.

 

 

Dancers:

 
We almost missed the show because Karen and Lou were bargaining at Diamonds International.  (Peggy and Bob were not the only shoppers on this trip.)

We would have sat with them, but we wanted to be in the shade.  We're not really used to sunshine anymore.

Traditional dancers.
This man could make the rope dance.
This is a deer, who danced around the stage for awhile and then was shot down by sneaky hunters.
Made you dizzy just watching these guys spinning around.
The Paplanta Flyers are going up there?!
They ascended the pole, sat at the top for while, threw themselves off, and the whole thing spun around till they reached the ground.
At the end of the show, everyone came out to take a bow.
After the show, we went to a resort where we fed (again), drank, and listened to live music.  We had the chance to go to the beach, but we headed back to the ship instead.
   
Senor Frog and I have a good relationship.  He serves, I drink.
This is one of Omer's photos. 

Doesn't it look like Senor Frog is reaching out to grab you?  Lou thinks he is trying to hand you a margarita.
