With 29.59 percent of votes in its category, El Chepe Express, which runs along the Sinaloa – Chihuahua route, managed to place itself among the best of Mexico and obtained the “Best tourist route 2020” award, awarded by the digital magazine México Desconocido.
The award was given by the Secretary of Tourism of the Government of Mexico, Miguel Torruco Marqués, and was held within the framework of the 45th Tianguis Turístico México, in Mérida.
The distinction was received by the Secretary of Tourism of Sinaloa, María del Rosario Torres Noriega; Jimena Ramírez, Deputy Director of Tourism at Ferromex; Teresa Matamoros, director of the Chihuahua Tourism Trust and Gerardo Vidales, Director of Tourism of the same state.
Angélica Navarro Castillo, Editorial Director of México Desconocido explained that the intention is to summon audiences to recognize the most original experiences and destinations.
The voting took place in March 2020, but due to the cancellation of the Tourist Tianguis due to the pandemic, the award ceremony was postponed and finally, the recognitions were delivered in the 45th edition that takes place in Mérida.
In this contest, 14 categories were evaluated and 232 thousand 735 users participated, who were able to navigate through more than 1 million digital pages to enjoy the wonders offered by the 32 states of the Mexican Republic.
