Sinaloa is a Mexican federal state located in the northwest of the country at the Gulf of California. It shares borders with the states of Sonora and Chihuahua to the north, Durango to the east, and Nayarit to the south. Its capital and biggest city is Culiacán. Other important cities are Los Mochis, Guasave, and Guamuchil in the north, and the port city of Mazatlán in the south. Sinaloa is an agricultural state, as you will notice when travelling through. Going to Baja California Sur from Sinaloa is possible, either by hitchhiking a sailboat in Mazatlán, or taking a very expensive ferry from Mazatlán or Topolobampo (close to Los Mochis).
