Mazatlan Sinaloa.- The Warning that the United States government recently issued, where it prevents its nationals from traveling to Sinaloa, Mazatlan is exempt; said the secretary of State Tourism, Oscar Pérez Barros.
He said that in this update, the travel alert issued by the State Department excludes Mazatlan, Los Mochis, and Topolobampo, as long as it travels with certain restrictions.
In the case of Mazatlan, he said that you can only travel by air or sea, and are limited to the Golden Zone and the Historic Center of the city, and must use direct routes when traveling from those places to the airport and cruise terminals.
He said that despite these types of actions, municipalities such as Mazatlan would not be affected, as tourism has been flowing satisfactorily, mainly due to the continuous arrival of cruise ships and new arrival plans.
Yes we have a Warning, but Mazatlan remains the same as in recent years, the Golden Zone, Malecon, Historic Center, Olas Altas, and Topolobampo are free, nor where they have announced that by 2020 12 cruises are coming
Pérez Barros said that despite what happened in Culiacán, Sinaloa brings very good results in tourism, progress is being made because it has a strategy.
He stressed that it is a great achievement that the two main beach destinations of the entity have been kept free for cruise ships, such as Mazatlan and Topolobampo, it is very good, they have to continue working hand in hand with the consulate, the US embassy United to get out of this alert.
I will never agree on the place that puts us on the alert, but it is very good that we have a line in the sand, we can continue moving upwards so as not to back off
The alert for the Sinaloan entity is level 4, that is, it is suggested that American citizens not travel to the designated areas, due to the level of insecurity they live in and the states of Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, and Tamaulipas as well They were pointed out.
