This phenomenon always occurs every year prior to the December holidays, then from the 25th onwards it begins to rebound again.
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Compared to other weekends, the influx of tourists at the Embarcadero de la Isla de la Piedra has been very low, said César Lizárraga, partner of the Union of Lancheros, said that this phenomenon always occurs every year previous to the holidays.
” At this time we always have little tourism, from the 25th onwards it begins to rise again, right now everyone is getting ready for the December holidays, for Christmas dinner, ” he said.
He added that in these lean seasons it is the local passenger who sustains the business; Hundreds of islanders and Mazatlecos cross every day from the island to the city and vice versa, for work or business reasons.
He recalled that last year the demand for crosses was regular, as people were just beginning to get out of social confinement; He hopes that this 2021 the numbers of two years ago can be reached when up to a thousand tourists crossed a day on weekends.
Currently, seven large boats with a capacity for up to 32 passengers are in operation and 13 motorboats are active. Users are asked to board with a mandatory mask.
