“The expectation is that the hotels that we are participating in, is that we have a complete schedule of appointments and that is good, more than Sinaloa is Mazatlán in particular, there are two destinations or three, Mazatlán, Barrancas del Cobre and Culiacán as business destinations of Sinaloa, ”he declared. 

Víctor Vladimir Ramírez del Ángel, general manager of the Mazatlán International Airport, expressed that the idea of ​​increasing frequencies and air routes is a wish of the Ministry of Tourism and municipal authorities, however, this stems from the behavior of the pandemic globally and the opening of routes with its borders. 

“It depends a lot on the sense that they give to the monitoring of Covid-19 worldwide, the advantage is that today, countries have been flexible … that facilitates mobility in all means of transport, I believe that from now there may be fewer restrictions and more mobility but it also depends a lot on the decisions made by the health authorities ”, he added. 

For his part, Alonso Gárate, tour operator and manager of Tropical Tours, said that, although few cruise ships companies attend the tianguis due to its own annual meeting, the expectation will always be to increase the hotel offer and its occupations, that everyone who comes to the port has a formal room.

You will fall in love with its gastronomy

One of the attractions that will attract buyers and new investors is gastronomy, since “the Pearl of the Pacific” has become a gastronomic destination that many have chosen to visit for the seafood that is distinguished from other cities, as stated by Rodrigo Rodríguez Calf.

“We have been leaders for just over 10 years, I believe that we are in the northwest area of ​​Tijuana and the Valley area, together with Mazatlán, we are the places that offer more offers of gastronomy from the region and we have been doing this,” he said. .

The president of the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry and Spiced Food of Mazatlán added that gastronomy has also helped to position itself as a gastronomic destination above Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta because in addition to having good restaurants and carts, it is a fishing port that keeps up with the product.
