The Tourism Secretariat and the municipal authorities will seek more tourist and cultural events to be visited by the same national and international Sinaloans, such as the Festival de las Velas.
MAZATLAN. – Maintaining a tourist attraction is not easy, it is demonstrated with Mazatlán every time they fix ridges, clean the beaches, hotels and condominiums grow, new attractions are built, now imagine maintaining a Magic Town, which more than infrastructure has culture, natural attractions and historical, beyond houses with colored facades.
The secretary of tourism, María del Rosario Torres Noriega, visited precisely the first Magic Town in Sinaloa, Cosalá, a municipality that is approximately 176 kilometers from Mazatlán, entering through La Cruz, Elota, that is, more or less 2 hours and a half.
During this visit, he mentioned that the important thing to consolidate, reinforce and protect the municipality as a Magic Town, is the sum of citizens, businessmen, and authorities, who all contribute little or a lot so that the image is maintained and thus adopt public spaces as a way to enhance the appearance of your destination.
“It is going beyond what we have to do. It is not just going to meet a schedule, because their schedule ends and they follow him because they want Cosalá, that is why they get involved and that is the key to success so that they can continue to be Pueblo Mágico ”, he told them.
The Mayor, Carla Corrales Corrales, said that the constant visits of state authorities, especially tourism, raise the confidence of Cosalá as a Magic Town, by showing interest in maintaining and promoting them.
“Rosario, you are from home, you are not a stranger, you know our town, from end to end, because we have visited all the ranches together, you know about our needs,” he declared.
Cosalá has been a Magical Town since 2005, it is considered by the Federal Government as a prosperous mining area, but it has a vast pre-Hispanic culture that began with indigenous communities such as Tepehuanes, Acaxees, and xiximies.
It is known for its Parish of Santa Úrsula, the Museum of Mining and History, the Ecological Reserve of Mineral de Nuestra Señora, the Plaza de Armas, the Quemado Barracks, as well as its waterfalls, ghosts, piteados belts, tamales, and many other things that pay as attractions.
Over time, the inhabitants themselves have embraced the badge, innovating with their colorful facades, cobblestone streets, murals that call for good photography, and ridges full of colors and light.
