Mazatlan is betting on more hotels and air connections


So far this year, 14 billion pesos have been invested by the private sector

Mazatlan, Sinaloa .- So far this year, 14 billion pesos have been invested and 23 billion pesos are being executed mainly in real estate and tourism developments, said David Torrentera, secretary of Economic Development, Tourism, and Fisheries.

He commented that in a matter of private investment Mazatlan is experiencing an unprecedented stage since it has usually been below Culiacán. Currently, the city is number one in private investment.

More rooms

He explained that 1,200 hotel rooms are being built, showing a tendency to increase. In addition, there are three hotels interested in settling in the Historic Center and others looking for spaces in the north of the city and the marina.

He stated that all the City Council’s offices will work together to be able to invest in public services and thus avoid the problems that have arisen with the neighbors of the colonies, which express their concern for the real estate developments that threaten to worsen the public services of their colonies and subdivisions.

More flights

He added that he is looking for ways to attract new flights, and it shows the six obtained in the Tourist Tianguis from Canada and one to the city of Tijuana with Viva Aerobús.

He said it is very safe to close an agreement with the help of the state government with the airline Aeromar since it is looking to take advantage of the market of the airport of the shoal. It is expected that in 2019 the number of visitors per air will increase by 12 percent. In 2018, one million 37 thousand people received this route of transport.
