Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- During this summer vacation season, visitors who arrive in Mazatlan have been delighted by everything that the port offers them, from the tourist attractions to its gastronomy.
Ana, a tourist from Querétaro, mentioned that she really wanted to get to know Mazatlán, because of everything she had seen on the internet, but especially, her intention was to go up to the Lighthouse.
“The truth is that I really wanted to get to know El Faro, although it is very tiring, I really enjoyed climbing it, I come from Querétaro just to get to know El Faro, really,” he said.
It is during the weekend when the influx of tourists through the Malecón, the beaches, the Historic Center, and the Golden Zone, among other places, is most noticeable.
“We are from Mazatlan, but it’s been a while since we went to live in Sonora, and since the port deserves 5 stars, I don’t think the people who come don’t like it here, it’s changed a lot ,” mentioned Carmen, who is here for a few days visiting the city.
Visitors say that Mazatlan is the ideal place to vacation.
Jorge and Lucía, a young couple who are visiting the port for the first time, from Mexico City, assured that, in addition to going on a catamaran, they wanted to eat in front of the sea, so it was the first thing they did in a restaurant located over the bay of Mazatlan.
“To know, I think that we want to know everything that the city has, but we really wanted to eat here in the port, facing the sea, the taste of the seafood is different from that of the City of Mexico,” said the young woman.
