    Hello, I watched video. My husband and I want to spend Winter in Mazatlan from November thru February possibly thru March. I am Mexican and I speak Spanish. We are both Retired. We are on a budget like Diane. We would like a place within walking distance to the beach. We would like a fully furnished two bedroom budget friendly place. Does Diane know where or how do we look for a place?
