Bloody Mexico - Los Mochis

Ciudad Juarez is considered to be Mexico's drug murder capital, but Juarez is several times larger than Los Mochis, and Mochis is home to the four largest drug cartels in Mexico. I'm sure that you've heard of Juarez (below), but you might not know that much about Los Mochis. That has more to do with the lack of press coverage than the fact that there is something to cover there. Reporters unfavorable to cartel members simply don't last long. 

There is not much of a tourism industry centered in Los Mochis, even though it's located on I-15 on the picturesque Gulf of California, just across from Cabo San Lucas and La Paz, where you might have sucked down an umbrella drink, sitting in a chair on the beach in the sand while Mariachis played in the background.

A Los Mochis Vacation - the antidote for civilization...

Oh, and don't toss that old lawnmower in the trash. Bring it with you on your Los Mochis vacation. They will turn it from it's former use into diving equipment.
