Sinaloa and Surroundings
Sinaloa is a state in North-western Mexico with most of its coast along the Gulf of California. Within the state we have two training centres located in Culiacán and Mazatlán. Culiacán is the largest state in Sinaloa and its capital. The city is home to several universities and is only a short way from the nearest beach (Altata) with white sand and light blue waters. Altata is great for waves and nightlife. The beach city of Mazatlán is famous for its flora and fauna, you can even go whale watching. Furthermore, in Mazatlán you will experience some of the best cuisine Mexico has to offer with its seafood and ceviches to its famous beer Pacifico.
