Maritime Terminal for Cruise Ships to be built in Mazatlan


Without having the amount of the investment, the Secretary of Communications and Federal Transportation, Javier Jiménez Espríu, informed this afternoon about the construction of a Maritime Terminal for Cruises, which will be next to the API, in the docks of Mazatlán. He announced at least 400 million pesos for other works, some roads.

The official, along with Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel, led the inauguration ceremony of the branch to the 3.5-kilometer highway and the bridge at the junction to the airport, which cost 260 million pesos.

In the act the first one to the microphone was the mayor of Mazatlan, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, who stressed that it is not a great work, but very important for its strategic place for the development and growth of the city.

Then, Governor Ordaz Coppel reiterated the tourist, economic and social impact. He recognized that this branch, which will lead tourists and locals to the Tourist Zone without going through the Colosio highway, gives a new image to the city and not the popular colonies that are along that old avenue.

Leovigildo Carranza, the king of tuna, also spoke; Carlos Berdegué, hotel entrepreneur, Amado Guzmán, entrepreneur, and Guillermo Romero, state leader of the Fecanaco, who agreed on the importance of the work to detonate more economically to Mazatlan. Leovigildo Carranza, owner of PINSA, said that Mazatlan is becoming a “little Cancun”.

When closing the messages, Jiménez Espríu recognized the work of Governor Ordaz Coppel in his government for having works done with the support of the federal government. He spoke about projects on the doorstep, such as access to El Quelite, rehabilitation of the road to Estrella del Mar, the Badiraguato to Parral highway and the construction of a Maritime Terminal for Cruises. He repeated the phrase of Carranza and said that while it will not be a “little Cancun, this city will be a great Mazatlan.”

In the presidium was the Secretary of Tourism, Oscar Pérez Barros; and the federal delegate for Special Programs, Jaime Montés.
