Upload a Pneumonia

Travel in curious, open white carts that serve as public transportation. They owe their name to the fact that taxi drivers, suspicious that tourists would use them to get around, held them back telling them not to do so because they could get pneumonia from the air.

These small vehicles can take you wherever you want, but be careful because with so much heat, you will surely get pneumonia.Transportation to visit places in Mazatlan.
