The Caribbean Association, representatives of most of the cruise ships that arrive in Mazatlan, met with the state tourism authorities, headed by the head of this dependency Oscar Pérez Barros, and the mayor of Mazatlán, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, to learn more about all the attractions of the port, in addition to those that come as the Central Park, with a view to reaching more than the 140 scheduled cruises and visitors who stay at least one night.
