Welcome To Sinaloa Travels
Sinaloa, estado (state), northwestern Mexico. It is bounded by the Gulf of California (also called the Sea of Cortez) and the Pacific Ocean to the west and by the states of Sonora to the north, Chihuahua and Durango to the east, and Nayarit to the south. Its capital city is Culiacán.
History of Sinaloa
Prior to the coming of the Spaniards, much of Sinaloa was inhabited by the Cáhita peoples.
In 1531, Nuño Beltrán de Guzmán with a force of over 10,000 men, defeated a force of 30,000 Cáhita warriors at the site of Culiacán. Beltrán de Guzmán established a Spanish and allied Indian outpost at San Miguel de Culiacán. Over the next decade, the Cahíta suffered severe depopulation from smallpox and other diseases the Spanish brought.
The Spanish organized Sinaloa as part of the gobierno of Nueva Galicia. In 1564, the area was realigned: the area of Culiacán and Cosalá remained in control of Nueva Galicia, while the areas to the north, south and west were made part of the newly formed Nueva Vizcaya province, making the Culiacán area an exclave of Nueva Galicia. The first capital of Nueva Vizcaya was located in San Sebastián, near Copala, but the capital moved to Durango in 1583.

Stay where in Sinaloa ??
Sinaloa is rather like the country of Chile in that it is a long narrow strip of land with ocean on its west and mountains in the east. As a result there are a lot of overlooked beaches and mountain playgrounds for those willing to get off the beaten path and explore a bit.
