A quiet, retirees group, mostly US and western Canadian, occupy Islas in the winter. Islas is a do your own thing resort where the loudest noise is the continuous sound of the pounding surf . There are no planned activities. Many tours are available but mostly it is relaxing , reading in the sun, shopping and golf that occupies the daylight hours of the winter group. There are many fine restaurants so the evenings pass quickly. You can join the hoopla if you so desire as Islas is located between the largest resort in Mexico (El Cid Mega Resort ) and the newly renovated Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort.
Mazatlan is a working town with the largest shrimp fleet in Mexico, an equally large fishing fleet, tuna canning , coffee manufacturing and a great brewery plus being a tourist town. Unlike Cancun, and other Mexican resort towns, Mazatlan has retained a Mexican flavor. It is friendly, safe, has excellent restaurants, growing golf opportunities, plenty of tennis, tours to the islands, city and mountains. A real plus is there is no need for a car. Everyone uses the bus and open air taxis.
