Post #3 of 7
The post states that hotels are at nearly 100% occupancy, and that is the case. I did some checking just yesterday, as a matter of fact, and indeed the reservations have been pouring in for Carnaval and Semana Santa, as well. People, especially from around the State of Sinaloa, are coming to Carnaval. Reality is, that as much as certain people (and questionable blogs) like to spread gloom and doom, life does go on here. The preparation for Carnaval, which begins today, has been fun and people are looking forward to (especially the kids who get time off from school).
Yesterday, a happy story occurred after the Oosterdam docked. An American woman (first off the cruise ship for obvious reasons), was taken to the hospital where she promptly gave birth to a little boy! The little fellow will automatically have Mexican citizenship, and his parents will have nice memories of Mazatlan.
The last link contains photos of cruise ship passengers around the city, taken yesterday.
