He said that although there have been no problems of shortage of fuel here in Mazatlan, could affect input shortages in spare parts, food, and tourism arrival.

Manifestó, that on weekends has felt a drop in tourists arriving in their vehicles from Jalisco, Nayarit, Durango, and Zacatecas.

“With the uncertainty situation of not knowing until when the supply is going to be resolved in the center of the country, there are no conditions that guarantee the supply to be able to move and come to enjoy a few days in Mazatlan,” he said.

Ortega Vizcarra added that the winter season has been one of the best in the history of Mazatlan, with record numbers in terms of the arrival of domestic and foreign tourists.
