Stone Island Tour - Mazatlan Mexico Drones

Stone Island (Isla Piedra) is about a 40-minute drive from anywhere in Mazatlan or a dollar ferry ride across the water from the harbor.  Although it's not really an island it is a nice afternoon adventure.  When driving over we like to cross through the palms where the coconuts for Mazatlan are harvested and drive the beach to the town.   If you prefer the beaten path there is a short .5km section of dirt road following 3 miles of nicely paved road into town.  Endless Beaches with palapas offering a variety of seafood await your arrival.

 Locals arriving on the ferry (panga) that takes you across to Mazatlan.  Round trip is around one dollar.

 Make sure you stop at Osuna for a Torta.  For about $2  you get a huge Torta sandwich that is very fresh and they also have great fruit and coco smoothies (liquados).  We love the view of the marina with all of the local action and even though it is surrounded by sand you could eat off of the concrete floor (its that clean).

 Drones attract a lot of attention from the local kids.  Very curious, respectful and polite!
