A day at Stone Island in Mazatlan might be fun for you. The beach is lined with restaurants and as long as you buy a drink/snack/lunch etc. they let you use their beach chairs and umbrellas.

You can take a water taxi to Stone Island and back for really cheap. Go to cruisecritic.com and check out the Ports of Call section for Mexican Riviera...lot's of fantastic info on there.

I'm not up on all the excursions offered on the MR cruise but at 5 and 6 years old my kids loved the catamaran sailing/snorkeling/beach excursions. They thought sailing on the catamaran was really fun and at six, DD, loved snorkeling. My son did not want to snorkel but still enjoyed being on the boat.

I second Stone Island as an option for a beach day.

I found the following:
Johann and Sandra's Stone Island Tour

For $36, it includes:
Cruise Ship Pickup and Drop off, 1 Hour Catamaran cruise, 4 Hours on the Island, Choice of any two Activities: Kayaking, Horse Cart Tour, Boogie Boarding, Horseback Riding, Snorkeling, or Banana Boat Rides, Open Bar on the Island, Mexican Lunch at a Beachside Restaurant, and Use of Beachside Facilities like Palapas.

Does it sound too good to be true?

Yes it does, but it is true.

They get reviews and are well known. Another company offering a similar package is King Davids (think that's the name).

Mazatlan Questions

We are in Mazatlan from about 8:30 am until 6 pm. Does anyone know if there is enough time to do Randi’s Happy Horses and then an all inclusive like El Cid?

Also not sure if it would be difficult to arrange that transportation.

Any thoughts or advice are appreciated!

I'm sure you would have time to do both. You just wouldn't hang out at Randi's for lunch very long after the ride. We did Randi's in the am and right after we ate, we met up with Mazatlan Frank for an afternoon tour.

no Matzatlan

Matzatlan has been eliminated from the stops. It is too dangerous
