A Place To Discuss Everything About Mazatlan
Visiting for a few months, seeking advice :)
I’m David, and I’ll be spending about 3 months in Maz starting the second week in August. I live in Baltimore with my husband and our chickens and work as a social worker. Stoked for the opportunity to improve my Spanish and spend more time writing.
I’ve been reading your forums and you all seem like super kind people, which is great. I’m here to ask for a bit of advice. I’m working with a Spanish language school which seems pretty good, well-reviewed online, etc., but the lodging piece has been a challenge. The school offered to place me in a homestay with a family for $900USD/mo., which to me sounds nutty as it’s more than I pay for my half of the mortgage here in Maryland.
My ideal situation would be to rent a room in a family’s house (so that I can practice Spanish as much as possible), but I’m also down to rent a studio or small place of my own if it’s reasonable… and from my research, it seems like the prices aren’t crazy…
So I guess my questions are, what is the web site where people rent rooms from? Craigslist doesn’t seem to be too busy. Or, if I’m going to go for a cheap studio, how can I go about setting that up from here?
Any guidance most appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time.
