In late 2020 we were growing antsy and wanting a break from our "locked down" Covid life. We also wanted to be safe and not take unnecessary chances at catching it. We have some long time friends that moved to Mazatlan in 2019, and they helped us to arrange renting a condo for a month in the same building where they live. While there we extended our stay for another 2 weeks, so we had a really relaxing stay of a little over 6 weeks.
We didn't really live life much different that we had at home in Chapala for the past almost year of Covid, but it was a really great change of scenery for us. The condo is on a wonderful beach on the edge of Mazatlan with very few tourists. We mostly stayed around the condo and mainly only went out to do a bit of shopping. We didn't go out to a restaurant the entire time there, but had a great time walking on the beach, watching sunsets, collecting shells and just relaxing.
