MAZATLÁN.- There is interest from several municipalities and communities in Sinaloa in obtaining the title of Magical and Stately Towns, but the calls will hardly come out, informed the Secretary of Tourism, María del Rosario Torres Noriega.
He mentioned that for Magical Towns, it is the Federal Sectur who is in charge of it, and it is the state that names, due to a series of requirements, the Stately Towns, being San Javier, from San Ignacio, one of those that has already been raised for this title.
“There are several interested parties to not only be Magical Towns but also Stately Towns, we must remember that the Magical Towns program is federal and the Stately Towns program is from the state,” he declared.
Among the towns interested in having the federal badge are Concordia, San Ignacio, and Sinaloa de Leyva, which on several occasions have raised their hands to join Cosalá, El Fuerte, Mocorito, and Rosario.
The expectation is to add more towns with both distinctions, Torres Noriega pointed out, and they intend to increase the annual budget of the Sectur to achieve this, and thus diversify the tourist offer in Sinaloa.
He added that they will take advantage of the call for Barrios Mágicos to launch communities in Sinaloa and take advantage of those federal resources to start with that regional tourist power.
“There is a program launched by the federal Sectur called Barrios Mágicos and for this one occasion, that meet the requirements, it will be a power of the state governor, we are going to present some proposals to those who could meet the requirements”, said.
They will show off at the Tianguis de Pueblos Mágicos
The state official announced that the four Magical Towns of Sinaloa will participate in the Tianguis de Pueblos Mágicos, which will be held in Oaxaca from October 10 to 14.
In this tianguis, he said, they take advantage to promote and sell these destinations, they bring out the best of their music, gastronomy, and even dance to make the buyers who attend fall in love.
