You can travel to Mazatlan with restrictions says Secretary of Tourism


Pérez Barros assured that the update of the Warning issued recently by the US, will not affect Mazatlán

Mazatlán Sinaloa.- The Warning that the United States government recently issued, where it prevents its compatriots from traveling to Sinaloa, Mazatlán is exempt; stated the Secretary of State Tourism, Oscar Pérez Barros.

He expressed that in this update, the travel alert issued by the State Department, excludes Mazatlán, Los Mochis, and Topolobampo, as long as you travel with certain restrictions.

In the case of Mazatlán, he said that you can only travel by air or sea, and they are limited to the Golden Zone and the Historic Center of the city, and they must use direct routes when they travel from those places to the airport and cruise terminals.

He assured that despite this type of action, municipalities such as Mazatlán would not be affected, since tourism has been flowing satisfactorily, mainly due to the continuous arrival of cruise ships and the plans for new arrivals.

We do have a Warning, but Mazatlán remains the same as in recent years, the Golden Zone, Malecón, Historic Center, Olas Altas, and Topolobampo are safe

Perez Barros

Pérez Barros pointed out that despite what happened in Culiacán, Sinaloa brings very good results in terms of tourism, progress is being made because there is a strategy.

He stressed that it is a great achievement that the two main beach destinations of the entity have been kept free for cruises, such as Mazatlán and Topolobampo, it is very good, for them they have to continue working hand in hand with the consulate, the embassy of States United to get out of this alert.

I will never agree THAT they put us on the alert, but it is very good that we have stayed ON that ALET, SO we can continue moving upwards so as not to go back

Perez Barros


The alert for the Sinaloan entity is level 4, that is, it is suggested to American citizens not to travel to the designated areas, due to the level of insecurity that exists there and the states of Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, and Tamaulipas as well were singled out.
