Mexico is situated in the northern region of the American continent linking the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is encircled by the United States on the north and by Guatemala and Belize on the south and is divided into six tourist regions. These regions are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, The Yucatan Peninsula, The Pacific Coast and The Baja California Peninsula.

Mazatlan is one of the most important ports on the Pacific coast and one of the popular tourist destinations in Mexico. Located in the southern region of the state of Sinaloa, Mazatlan is almost 212 kilometers to the southeast of state capital Culiacan. The climate is warm with an average year-round temperature of 25 degree Celsius.
Known as the Pearl of the Pacific because of its beautiful beaches and its abundant marine life, it has become an important site for international fishing tournaments such as the Bisbee’s Billfish Classic.
