Mazatlan citizens criticize the city for constant cancellation of events


The most recent case is the Playa Norte water park, which much has been said about whether it will open to the public

Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- The cancellation of events, projects and tourist attractions that have tried to be carried out in the port, which the city hall of Mazatlan has not allowed, as is the case of the water park in the North Beach area, shows little interest from the mayor for the opportunity to generate more and new jobs, citizens said.

Interviewed this Friday, some of the ordinary citizens and even tourists criticized the slowdown of investments for the port, although there are those who applaud it to avoid affecting the natural environment of the area.

“The truth is that I do not agree, because in any case, the crime does not end, because even if the city cancels, cancels and cancels events the crime remains the same, then the loss of tourism growth.”

“On the one hand it is wrong because it is losing jobs there, it is blocking jobs.”

However, although there are people who disagree with the measures that the municipality is taking, there are others who support the measure of the city, since this park, they point out, has effects on the ecosystem.

“On the one hand it is fine because it is not affecting the ecosystem so much with that project that is like a water park for example.”

“I personally, I am completely against the execution of a project of this nature, without environmental regulations.”

They mentioned that the use of blockers, plastics and the massive visit of tourists make that beach area polluted, but on the side of tourists, they commented that it is good that there are different attractions every time, since many of them visit the port every year.
