Sinaloa exceeds the arrival of tourism compared to other pats years with over 18 million visitors
As of yesterday, Sinaloa had received 18.8 million tourists, thus exceeding the state goal of the Development Plan, which was to register 4 million per year, reported the Secretary of Tourism, Óscar Pérez Barros.
He said that the achievement of attracting more visitors than proposed is due to the programs of the Government of Quirino Ordaz Coppel, which are focused on attracting more tourists to the state.
Achievements will follow
“It is more than clear, the tourism issues in Sinaloa, the strategy has worked so that more visitors arrive to the state than the number agreed at the beginning of the administration,” said the state official.
Pérez Barros indicated that it is necessary to continue betting on Sinaloa in terms of tourism, since it is a transversal economy that reaches all corners of society, mainly in the southern part of the state, which is the main economic activity from the municipalities of Cosalá, San Ignacio, Elota, Concordia, Mazatlán, El Rosario and Escuinapa.
The state official commented that each entity in the state, whether in the north, center, and south has something to show the tourist, national or foreign, who decides to see the attractions, which each of the 18 municipalities has.
As a noble activity, he described the tourism sector, which directly and indirectly benefits the rest of the population sectors, through the spending made during their stay by both visitors from different parts of the country or foreigners who arrive from the United States or Canada, during winter.
“This hard data tell us the importance of tourism activity in the state, which is reflected in the arrival of visitors and the opening of businesses, which attract more tourism to the city.”
The Secretary of Tourism in Sinaloa indicated that it is necessary to take care of the visitor, as well as the tourist destinations that the state has, mainly Mazatlán.
When Quirino Ordaz Coppel arrived as governor of Sinaloa, his mandate proposed that each year 4 million visitors be registered, a number that has been exceeded during the last year of his administration by accounting for 18.8 million tourists.
