00:00-00:06 JON: Ola mi amigo’s, I’m JOn Olson. Bienvenido’s from Next Stop, from the longest sea boulevard in the Americas.
00:07-00:20 NEXT STOP MAZATLAN rolls
00:21-00:40 JON: Mazatlan, Mexico is known as the pearl of the Pacific, and we’ll show you why. It’s comfortable, casual, affordable Mexico at it’s finest, and it’s one of our favorite Mexican destinations. From warm culture, to great foods, to fun activities to a rocking nightlife, Mazatlan is en fuego, you’ll see. The fun starts ahora, now.
00:41-00:43 Next Stop logo
00:44-02:09 JON: There is a multitude of ways to discover Mazatlan, today we are going to do it the fun way, on the fun bus, followed by an art history walking tour. Let’s have some fun!
LUIS: To start first, here on the right we have a disco. Valentino’s one of the largest disco’s here in Mazatlan. The most unique about this beautiful disco is it is settled on this beautiful natural rug. One of the nice things I hear about Mazatlan Malecon we are the largest one on the whole entire world, we are about 13 miles long and it is about 21 kilometers.This is one of the great exports that we do here in Mazatlan which is fishing. On the other side we have the beautiful lady, and her presentation of the beautiful woman of Mazatlan as well too. All these guys early in the morning, about 5, 6:00 in the morning, they go straight out to the islands, they do some fishing, they come over here, they gut your fish, clean it out, scale it and sell it to you by the pound. Coming up next there is a nice monument right here of the continuation of life, and as well here in Mazatlan you can see a lot of dolphins early in the morning. This monument is about 25 feet high and then the guy has to jump forward and 4, 5 feet forward because he has the rocky land and then he only has about 5 feet. Once he hits the ground he has to go back up because everything on the ground is nice and rocky.
02:17-02:57 JON: He made it! Luis, I like your town.
LUIS: Thank you very much. Welcome.
JON: Thanks for the tour. Now you are a local guy.
LUIS: I am a local guy, exactly.
JON: But you moved away.
LUIS: I sure did.
JON: And you came back, what brought you back?
LUIS: My family.
JON: There is lots of beautiful, beautiful statues along the Malecon, what are some of your favorites?
LUIS: My favorite one would have to be the continuation of life. And I guess the harmony of the sculpture is unique, it’s awesome. Because it resembles Mazatlan, the whole continuation of life and always together as a family, it doesn’t matter where you go, you always have to do it together.
JON: Well that bus ride was fun. Now for some art and history.
03:01-03:52 SHEILA: Welcome to Mazatlan, this is our art museum, and across the street is our archaeological museum. Vamonos, let’s go see some art!
GLEN: Welcome to my studio, I’m Glen Rogers. In addition to my painting and my print making, I teach workshops here. Monotype is a one of a kind printing process where you are basically painting on a piece of plexiglass, now this is just black and white, but then you can go through it and add more colors, more layers, more information.
JON: Glen, obviously you are kind of a mover and a shaker in the art scene here, where do you see it going? I see, I feel like it is just ready to kind of explode, I really kind of feel something happening.
GLEN: Well you know with the art walk, it’s created a lot of interest in art and the artists, and more and more artists are moving in because they are realizing hey, this is a nice little artists haven we’ve got going.
03:57-04:58 SHEILA: In 1845 a little girl was born in Mexico City, as she got older and started to sing people realized, boy she’s got a beautiful voice. She traveled all over Europe and became so famous she was known as the mexican nightingale. Julian Monteal, he was her manager for many years so he started thinking, you know, she’s got all this wealth, she doesn’t have any children, and I better…we’ll get married. They did a wedding ceremony up in her room with some ‘witnesses’ and when it came time to say ‘I do’ she was dead. They thought, oh, what if somebody finds out, we have to do this again, so they talked about it and someone went behind the head of the bed and ‘do you take this man?’ and they took her head and went ‘uh huh’ honestly, hey, you can’t dispute that. She said yes and he got everything.
JON: Sheila something tells me that we’ve barely scratched the surface of your knowledge.
SHEILA: I believe that something that is telling you that is true, there is just so much to see and do here.
05:01-05:03 Next Stop logo
05:04-05:08 JON: Coming up on Next Stop, Tequila making 101, and Mazatlan’s tasty delights
05:10-05:12 Next Stop logo
05:13-05:48 JON: There are many ways to get around Mazatlan, and my favorite, the most fun and intriguing way, is in their open air taxis called pulmonias. They are pretty much located everywhere, they are very affordable, and they come in all different shapes and sizes, they are a lot of fun. The drivers are way more than just drivers, they are historians and tour guides, they love to impart their Mazatlan history and give you tips on things to see and do here. My tip for you, negotiate your fare before getting in the pulmonia. It’s also important to know whether you are paying in peso’s or US dollars. The current exchange rate is over 13 peso’s to one dollar, so it is muy importante. Most importantly, enjoy the ride!
05:51-05:53 Next Stop logo
05:54-07:05 JON: Sure Mazatlan has great beaches, great restaurants, its a very cool city. But outside of Mazatalan, with Huana Coa, you’ll find adventure.
JONATHAN: Nice to meet you Jon, I’m Jonathan.
JON: Hi Jonathan.
JONATHAN: Welcome to Huana Coa, let’s get your harness on.
JON: Alright, I’m excited.
JONATHAN: Now step in.This is to protect your brain.
JON: Ha ha, what little that’s left.
JONATHAN: And there you go Jon, you are all set.
JON: Well JOnathan I am going to go ahead and say that the adventure started way before we got up to here, that was quite a ride!
JONATHAN: That was great yeah?
JON: That was fun.
JONATHAN: And it is just the beginning, so…
JON: Awesome.
JONATHAN: Are you ready for this Jon?
JON: I’m ready for this.
JONATHAN: Are you sure?
JON: I’m ready, I’m ready.
JONATHAN: I mean I know you have done this before but, it’s always different, you know?
JON: Different is good.
JONATHAN: Great, alright. You sure you are good?
JON: I’m positive.
JONATHAN: All right then.
JON: Vamonos! wooo hooo!
07:19-07:34 JONATHAN: We are going to take you down, okay? I’m going to connect you to this device which is called figure 8.
JON: This is a different way to get down.
JONATHAN: Keep your legs apart from the rope, ok?
JON: Ha ha ha, awesome, that was a very cool way to get down.
07:45-10:00 JON: Our adventures continue on our way to the tequila factory. Viva La Vinata Lososuna!
DANIEL: Hi, you’re welcome. My name is Daniel and today you are going to learn about the making process of lososuna, the traditional way. Those are our steamers, we fill them with 4 tons of agave each. After the cooking process, agave is soft and sweet. This is after the cooking process, a pine, cook pine here, this only the natural sugar from agave, we don’t add anything. The next step is to extract the juice, we only want the juice, it’s done during the milling process and the older way we use here to extract the juice was a giant stone wheel. So, we wash all the sugar from the fiber and then the juice goes to the fermentation area. The fermentation is the main process, because here the yeast produces the alcohol. And there we have all the water, so the alcohol vapor is 60% alcohol, that’s why the next step is to reduce the alcohol content.
JON: Why would you want to do that? I’m just kidding!
DANIEL: We have 60% alcohol if you want it! If you smell with the right side of your nose, you will smell the wood, and if you smell with the left side, the alcohol.
JON: It’s smooth. This has to be one of my absolute favorite Mexican adventures. Zip lining, ATV’s and tequila. Gracias. Salud.

10:32-11:35 JON: One of my absolute favorite things about filming in Mexico is the food. It’s so good, it’s local, it’s organic, it’s fresh. We are on top of one of your suites here in your hotel, 4 generation.
LANCE: 4 generations, started in 1953 and I have the blessing of being in operations now and managing the hotel and trying towards, working towards having people like you come and celebrate our food with people of the quality of cooking of Mora, he is the president of the chef association in town, Cordon Bleu chef amongst many different cooking schools he has been to.
JON: And this is what Mazatlan is known for, the shrimp.
LANCE: This is absolutely what Mazatlan is known for, this is a type of shrimp called U 5, or Blue Giant shrimp of Mazatlan.
JON: The food scene in Mazatlan…we’ve had several great dinners, at some great restaurants, Topolo is one.
LANCE: Absolutely. Great town for food, definitely.
JON: Old town is a cool place, every restaurant is a little bit different, you really feel the culture here.
LANCE: Absolutely, you know Mazatlan has been around for more than 300 years as a port, so there is a lot of tradition in the downtown area, you have kind of an eclectic infusion of german, french, spanish.
11:41-12:30 LANCE: Now we add a little bit of seared mahi mahi or dorado. Next step is to add a mole sauce, which is actually a chocolate based sauce, this is traditional Mexico.
JON: I love that, it’s so good.
LANCE: Primarily from south central Mexico, so what we’ve done here we’ve taken recipes from around the country and infused them into a very traditional Mazatlan meal. That looks good man.
JON: It looks awesome. So how long should we wait?
LANCE: Well I mean, you are the guest, so I’m just about to jump at it, so you tell what is the courtesy wait time on your show?
JON: Well, there really is no set time, it’s kind of like when you want to do it. You are the king, remember, I am your taster. So I’m going to go ahead and dig in and taste one of the shrimp.
LANCE: Alright. I’m going to have to follow you up on that one, because you know, I just can’t sit back on that. It’s so good you’ve got to take 2 bites.
JON: They are just so good.

GIANCO: How are you Jon?
JON: Good to see you brother. What’s up for today? We’ve got some banana boats, we’ve got kayaks, we had a nice cruise out here too.
GIANCO: We’re just having fun today, you know we are going to do a little trip around the Mazatlan bay, we are going to go down to the south to see the white rocks as we call them.
JON: Now why are they white, because they are very very white.
GIANCO: Imagine thousands of birds just flying on top of them, what can you imagine?
JON: I can imagine that there is some bird dropping that paint the rocks white.
GIANCO: So here in Mazatlan we call them the bird poo islands.
JON: So snorkeling, kayaking, banana boats, it’s going to be a great day, let’s have some fun! I’m feeling a little pumped up, how about you?
GIANCO: Oh yeah.
JON: That was good.
GIANCO: That was excellent man.
JON: Good exercise, what’s next my man?
GIANCO: How do you feel like a banana boat ride?
JON: I’ve never done that, I see it all the time, never done it, I’m in.
GIANCO: Alright!
JON: Fast and furious, that’s how I like it.
GIANCO: That’s it.
JON: We didn’t tip.
GIANCO: We didn’t tip. We were close to doing it.
JON: We were close to tipping, that’s for sure. What’s next man, you are the maestro for the day.
GIANCO: Well, we’ve done kayaking, we’ve done a banana boat ride, how about a little sport like volleyball?
JON: Love it.
GIANCO: Sounds good to you?
JON: So far so good, it’s been a great afternoon. What’s up next?
GIANCO: What about a little nap? Because tonight is going to get wild Jon.
JON: Really?
GIANCO: Oh yes.

GIANCO: Yeah, then I will meet you at 10 downtown.
JON: Salud
GIANCO: Salud amigo
14:56-15:32 JON: And voila! It’s night time and we are ready to play.
GIANCO: Yes, I’m back again in downtown man.
JON: It’s a good night, this place is jumping.
GIANCO: You know in Mazatlan we have different options. I wanted to show you a little bit of downtown first, which is on the south part of Mazatlan.
JON” Ok, so we are at Mil Amores, a thousand loves, and this is what I am talking about Gianco, this is awesome.
GIANCO: This is great, you know we have different type music in different, in different places and this is very typical music not for Mazatlan, but for all Mexico.
15:4116:35- JON: What is the drink here they are going to make a special drink for us?
GIANCO: Well they are going to do a special drink for us, with some fire and cinnamon you know. We are now in Bora Bora, very, very attractive place and very famous here in Mazatlan
JON: You can’t come to Mazatlan and not come to Senor Frog’s.
GIANCO: Now it is time to go meet Senor Frogs.
JON: We have a drink, a very special drink at Senor Frogs. Woo hoo, ha ha! Mazatlan nightlife, not bad!
16:38-16:40 Next Stop logo
16:41-17:04 JON: Mazatlan is the 2nd largest city in the state of Sinaloa, one of 31 states in Mexico, conquered in 1531. Mazatlan means ‘Land of the Deer’ white tailed deer to be specific, and has a population of roughly 875,000 people. I say roughly because they really don’t know, because guys like me come down and fall in love with the area and next thing you know all my friends and family have followed me. So it’s kind of hard to keep track. Come to Mazatlan and find out for yourself.
17:05-17:07 Next Stop logo
17:11-18:07 JON: We are staying at the lovely Pueblo Bonito Resort and Spa, located in Emerald Bay, one of the most beautiful parts of Mazatlan. This location is awesome Jorge.
JORGE: It’s really well located, in the downtown by the Emerald Bay, you’ve got the best of both things, you are close to downtown, you can take the shuttle and what people like is that this is real Mexico. This has a new classic french influence.
JON: The rooms feel like you are in real Mexico. Beautiful decorations that are designed to make you feel like you are in old Mexico. The property is stunning. How many pools?
JORGE: Each villa has it’s own pool and it’s own jacuzzi outdoor, and also indoor.
JON: Well you do have a great spa, it’s called a resort and spa, and we went in there today and got a workout in, it’s a beautiful, massive workout space and then the spa itself is pretty cool, tell us about that.
JORGE: We have different treatments, we have golf massage, swedish and pretty much any you can think of.
JON: You said something else that caught my eye, golf massage, golf ball massage. Is it with real golf balls?
JORGE: Yep, instead of using warm rocks they use golf balls.
18:13-19:04 CAROLINA: Today Jon, the treatment you will be receiving is the golf massage. It was designed for a special golfers which use a lot of posture, a lot of different techniques for their swing. We relax those muscles that are tense, we do a lot of stretching and a lot of warming of the muscles.
JORGE: So what did you think about the golf ball massage?
JON: I loved it. I love all kinds of massage, but that was different, it was a very kind of trigger point massage, your therapist did a great job.
JORGE: Did you try the cold plunge and the jacuzzi?
JON: I did try the cold plunge, I loved it, going from the hot jacuzzi into the cold plunge is a total shock to your system.
JORGE: Was it good for your hangover?
JON: Well I didn’t have a hangover, but if I had one it would be good for it.
JORGE: It’s good for that, or for the wrinkles.
JON: It’s good for that too.Your entire resort has been amazing for us, so thank you so much for hosting us.
JORGE: No, thank you for coming.
