By contrast Mazatlan, on the other side of the Sea of Cortez, was sunny and clear. With a small group and a local naturalist we hiked up to the 2nd highest lighthouse in the world (after Gibraltar), which sounds like a lot but is actually only about 500-600 feet above sea level. The rocky trail was full of iguanas and organ pipe cacti; at the top was a fabulous panarama of the city and surrounding islands plus the spectacle of dive-bombing falcons. It was good to burn off some calories after all that cruise food!
