Hiking, barbecues and skating are just some of the activities visitors can enjoy in this protected forest this September, says El Cid Vacations Club.

When people stay in Mazatlán with El Cid Vacations Club, they can’t help but notice the renaissance taking place. The city has always been a center of Mexican culture, but now there is a resurgent focus on art, music, cuisine and theater.

Amidst this burgeoning urban scene, it can be easy to forget the beautiful natural surroundings of Mazatlán, says El Cid Vacations Club. However, visitors here need not go far from the city for a view of the area’s natural flora and fauna. Nearly 30 acres of protected undeveloped land, called the City Forest, stands right in the heart of Mazatlán.

Billed as Mazatlán´s "lungs," the City Forest allows locals and tourists direct contact with the region’s local plant and animal life. Located near Acuario Mazatlán, people can enjoy a walk through two ecosystems. On one side of the park is a mixture of thorn-wood forest and tule vegetation on a saltwater lagoon. The other side of the park has more deciduous trees forest. While marine vegetation is predominate, there are also coconut palm trees, Eucalyptus trees, mangroves, banana groves, cactus, Lemongrass trees and Bougainvilleas.

Hobby ornithologists will enjoy checking out the 25 different bird species that call City Forest home. There are also six species of mammals that live in the park.

Besides strolling along the park’s trails, there are also recreation areas in the City Forest. Barbecue grills and outdoor playground facilities are placed throughout, and there is a wading pool, outdoor amphitheater, outdoor skating rink, small zoo and beautiful natural lagoon. El Cid Vacations Club says there is also a colorful small train that takes people on tours of the entire forest.
