After working in the mining industry for 40 years, I needed to find a way to leave the long, cold winter in Saskatchewan behind me.  After much research, my wife Sharon and I decided Mazatlan would be the place we would call our home.  We both love it here and pleased we can fulfill our dreams here.    Helping other people enjoy this vacation destination has always been interesting and fun.

Next Meeting

Because we are a volunteers group, I try to keep meetings to a minium. (It can become a strain to volunteer and make meetings.) But 2 or 3 times a year we will get together just to share ideas and feedback. If you have any questions, just e-mail me at   roger@maz-homes.com   and put "Tourist Aides Info" in the subject line. I will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Our Supporters

We really appreciate Beachfront Host who donates the server space to host this website.

We want to thank Simon Lynds who paid the bulk of the cost for our first batch of T-Shirts. Thanks Si !! Since then, the Secretary of Tourism ( SECTUR ) has been supplying T-Shirts to all our volunteers. They also supply us with hundreds of maps that we give out free to tourists who can use them. This is a huge help.

A big thanks to Beachfront Web who donated their time and talents to create this website.

We receive a LOT of help from SECTUR which is the Sinaloa State Secretary of Tourism. They provide us with T-Shirts, maps, and ID badges so we are 'Official'! Our contacts with SECTUR are Pavel Jimenez and Ivan Pico. Their dedication and professionalism is a big reason why we are able to do what we do. It is also a nice fringe benefit that we get several 'extra's a year from SECTUR and from the support provided by the U.S. Consular Agent here in Mazatlan, Luis Ramirez. Between them we have had special trips, invitations to concerts, and sometimes special seating for concerts and shows. It is not ALL work!!
