Mazatlán aquarium receives an average of 2,500 visitors a day


June closed with a record number of 82 thousand visitors, a month that is not a holiday

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Pablo Gerardo Rojas Zepeda, director of the Mazatlán Aquarium, reported that as of this week a greater influx of visitors is expected in the aquatic enclosure and is said to be ready to receive them all.

He said that like any other establishment they must comply with health protocols, therefore the maximum capacity allowed is 65%. In addition, there are two temperature accesses, a heat detector, hand washing area, and loudspeakers, to take care of both the health of the worker and that of the visitor.

“There is no reluctance to comply with the recommendations, sometimes they are inside and they want to lower the mouth guard, so we are constantly calling, for that is the staff that was hired, that all areas are covered,” he said.

During the weekend there are “peaks” of influx which, he added, is high but manageable; In line at the ticket office, people are constantly being reminded to keep their healthy distance.

Rojas Zepeda reported that they closed June with a record number of 82 thousand visitors in a month that is not a holiday. And so far in July, they receive an average of 2,500 visitors a day.

The influx is expected to increase this month and to avoid crowds, the opening hours were extended and seven exhibitions are offered.
