Rising behind Mazatlan is the Sierra Madre range of mountains, which separates the coastal area of Mexico from the interior. Rich in mineral wealth and extremely rugged, these mountains have become the subject of spectacular legends. Your exploration will take you from historic Mazatlan to the Durango Highway, stopping at a brickyard where adobe bricks are handmade and fired, much as they have been for several centuries. On your next stop, meet a village family home bakery with a chance to try some typical Mexican sweet bread baked in an adobe oven. A short drive along the foothills of the Sierra Madre will take you to another colonial village full of history, Concordia, famous for its wooden furniture making, where you’ll visit a 230-year old church. Visit a furniture factory and a potter’s home who produces roof tiles, jars, flowerpots and dishes typical of this region.


A scenic drive of the Sierra Madre will take you to the village of Copala, once a thriving Spanish gold mining town founded in 1565, where you’ll take a leisurely walk through the cobblestone streets. See Colonial houses, the jail and a spectacular church dating back to the early 18th century and enjoy a delightful lunch of Mexican food at a local restaurant. Back at Mazatlan’s Golden Zone you'll have approximately 30 minutes of free time to browse and shop before the scenic drive back to your ship.
