Mazatlan Frank Tour Guide

Written by Yvon Marier

While we were in Mazatlan, we took a Copala and city tour with Mazatlan Frank. We looked forward to it very much because Frank was highly recommended. He picked us up inrepparttar morning and headed off to Copala. Copala is a delightful little village about 40 miles from Mazatlan onrepparttar 139261 mountains, which was once a thriving mining town. Duringrepparttar 139262 ride, Frank kept us entertained withrepparttar 139263 history of Mazatlan, pointing out roadside interests, and best of all, his wonderful sense of humor. Frank's exceptional English, knowledge, charm and wit have made this tour so much more enjoyable. Alongrepparttar 139264 way to Copala, we made stops to see handmade bricks, tiles and potteries (incredible!!), beautiful hand-carved furniture (my wife had to convince me we couldn't bring furniture home inrepparttar 139265 plane), andrepparttar 139266 freshest homemade bakery (yummy!). Once we got to Copala, I was amazed by their arts and crafts. We spent some time browsingrepparttar 139267 town, and then off to this unique restaurant for a fabulous lunch, which includedrepparttar 139268 famous, absolutely delicious banana coconut cream pie!
