well mazatlan seems like an excellent for our spring break vacation. i know its a while away but one must start saving!! there will be 3 of us going [gals]. 2 teachers & 1 student so we need any advice to be able to cut expenses in food, lodging, etc. we dont need 5 star hotels, comfortable with spanish. we just want to have a good time. we are flying from chicago so airfare itself will be a big chunk. any tips would be greatly appreciated!
