Solar Eclipse 2024: what it includes and what cost it has the package of the Observatory of Mazatlán to see the event


The expectation for the next Total Solar Eclipse, which will be perceptible in Mexico and other regions of America, continues to increase as we are getting closer to the day when this will be a reality.

And it is that on April 8 the one that has been called the Great American Eclipse will occur for its greater visibility in that continent, especially in northern countries such as Mexico, the United States and Canada but of which our country has “the best place in the world to see it” according to what was stated by NASA itself.

As we know, this place is the beautiful port of Mazatlán in the state of Sinaloa, reason why it is expected that the place will receive a large number of tourists, both national and foreign, who hope to live this unique experience in life.

It is for this reason that authorities and businesses in the area are already planning a whole series of activities that complement the beautiful natural spectacle that they will live and creating experiences for visitors

One of them is the well-known tourist park Observatorio Mazatlán, which is a historic building that offers various activities such as a museum, funicular ride, a bird sanctuary and that now has created an experience to observe the eclipse, in a package that has a cost of 950 pesos.

This package, baptized as Golden Ring, offers:

-Special glasses to appreciate the eclipse.

-Access to all our areas.

-Meditation activities.

-Activities for children.

One of the reasons why this could be an excellent option to witness the eclipse is that the observatory has a privileged view, as it is a historic building that is located above sea level.

The name of this place comes from the fact that it used to be a Military observation post and received the name of Cerro del Vigía. But, in addition to its position, this park is also famous for having a bird sanctuary that you can visit with the cost of the package.

The date of the event will be the day of the eclipse, Monday, April 8, 2024 and will have a schedule of 8 am to 1 pm and the period to reserve is from February 15 to March 1 at the phone number that appears in the following image.

Why is Mazatlán considered the best place in the world to see the eclipse?

The total stage of the Eclipse in Mazatlán will reach its culmination at 12:11:43, coinciding with the moment when the sun is in its highest position in the sky (Zenith), which represents the optimal point to observe the phenomenon in this city.

In addition, the analyzes have indicated that the port will be the place with the most favorable weather conditions of all the destinations where the eclipse will transit, as it is expected to be a sunny and rainless day.

For their part, those who decide to see the eclipse in Mazatlán will have the advantage of being able to explore its beautiful beaches and a wide variety of additional activities afterwards.

The uniqueness of this event, which will not be repeated in this region for 300 years, has motivated various organizations to prepare a set of educational activities such as workshops and conferences
