Packing for your Trip to Mazatlán

Posted by: | Comments (0)

We are very glad you are coming to visit us at Hotel Playa Mazatlán Beach Hotel! We can’t wait to see you. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though! There is one important detail to attend to before you hop into a cab, drive to the airport, catch a plan, and fly into Mazatlán. Packing. You don’t want to forget something important. Don’t worry, we will help you out.

Packing for your trip

This isn’t just packing for any trip, this is packing for your trip. This means being prepared to do the activities that you want to do. Are you planning on doing any fine dining during your trip? If so, you want to pack appropriate clothing, a formal outfit and maybe even a jacket. Are you interested in going hiking when you visit Mazatlán? Don’t forget to pack some sturdy outdoor pants and a pair of hiking boots. We always recommend checking weather reports before you get here. Rain is common in Mazatlán, you don’t want to be unprepared for the elements! Of course, the number one thing to remember when coming to visit Mazatlán, is a swimming suit.

Packing the Essentials

Mazatlán is thriving urban city. If you forget a pair of shoes, a dress shirt, or sunscreen, you can always run into town to buy a new one. However, there are somethings you cannot get in Mazatlán. These are your packing essentials. Start with your passport. Without it you will not be able to move back and forth across the border. Prescription drugs are another must-pack item. We also recommend you bring copies of your travel insurance papers if you have them. Personally, we think a camera is an essential item when visiting Mazatlán, but we will leave that decision up to you!
