RV Life
There are numerous gorgeous RV parks in Mazatlán, ranging from on the
beach to close to the center of the Golden Zone, to near a shopping center to
the north, but they fill up quite fast--especially in the busy season. I suggest
you make reservations well in advance. Price varies according to time of year
and location.
Roads are not as good as most in the U.S. and Canada, so have good tires
and don't overload your rig. If you drive from Nogales to Mazatlán, take the
toll road
. The cost is worth it in wear and tear on your vehicle and time saved.
Don't believe the misconception that RVs have a special toll rate. Tolls in most
states are based on the number of wheels you have.
