Destination guide

There's more to Sinaloa than bread

Sinaloa is fondly referred to as "The Breadbasket of Mexico." That's because agriculture makes up nearly 80% of its economy and the produce of its farms feeds the rest of the country. But there's more to Sinaloa than its agricultural contributions. Sinaloa vacation rentals will allow you to explore places like Mazatlan, a popular destination for beach bums, foodies, and folk music enthusiasts, and Culiacan, a city with a rich colonial heritage. Sinaloa is also the only place on Earth where the ancient game of ulama is still played.

You can confidently let out your inner explorer when you visit Sinaloa—you won't be disappointed with all the sights you can see. There are museums, baroque churches, and art galleries you can get lost in. There are beaches where you can chillax. If courting lady luck is your thing, there are casinos you can check out. If the Great Outdoors is your passion, there are protected areas in Sinaloa where you can hike and commune with nature. Your inner Dora will be fully satisfied once you return to your Sinaloa vacation rentals at day's end.

Weather

Your sunscreen and hat are your best friends

If it's raining at the beach, it doesn't mean it's raining elsewhere in Sinaloa. The different regions of Sinaloa experience slightly different climates. It can be hot in the coastal plains, but it's much cooler in the central valleys and the eastern mountains. Sinaloa vacation rentals are busiest from June to August, the region's summer months, though they get a lot of wintertime bookings from December to February as well. Don't forget your hat and sunscreen when going down to Sinaloa—the sunshine is always strong.

Natural features

From the Western Sierras to the coastal plains

In Sinaloa, you're not likely to notice sudden changes in terrain. The Sierra Madre Occidental mountain range on the region's eastern side gently slopes down to the central valleys, which then descend to the coastal plains facing the Pacific Ocean. The eastern mountains feature deep canyons and gorges, home to wild cats and boars. Portions of the coastal plains are hilly, while the flat central valleys are converted mostly to farmland, especially around Culiacan. A number of shallow rivers cross the region and save it from being too dry.
