Car Rentals Mexico and the Sinaloa River
Drifting down the river hundreds of years ago, the Jesuit missionaries came to Mazatlan on the Sinaloa River. Today, it is still an important part of the life and culture of the city. While you may use your Mazatlan car rental to get around the area, the geography of the area at one time made this the best way to travel.

In terms of geography, Sinaloa has it all. It is a natural north-south passage that has big rivers that cross the state as well as dense jungles, mountains, and deserts. The beaches here are also very good for a variety of water sports that are found throughout the region. Exploring the interior of the state gives you a few choices: you can drive with your Mazatlan car rental or take a ride on the rails of the Chihuahua-Pacific Railway.

Try a cruise on the river
Why not leave your Mazatlan car rental behind and take a ride on the river. At one time, only 80 kilometers from the mouth of the river the Jesuits set up a missionary in what is now Sinaloa de Leyva. This is one of the most beautiful cities in the region. The crooked, narrow streets give the area a lot of character, and the houses from the 19th and early 20th century are still standing.

Villa de San Felipe y Santiago was not a mission town, but a Spanish villa. However, bearby there were missions at Cubiri and Bamoa, only a short trip away. The church in Bamoa was destroyed by floods in 1770, and the current church was built in the 19th century.
