His stay is 14 days on average and he likes to enjoy the gastronomy, customs and obviously the history of the places and all this offers the south of Sinaloa, said the head of the Sectur.

He pondered the fact that more flights will come from the Sunwing airline, which before Covid 19 touched nine destinations with Mazatlán and with the new collaboration agreement that was made with the company, the intention is to touch twelve, with this we are saying that it is guaranteed connectivity with Canada, and with companies such as West Jet, Sunwing, we will have a greater number of seats compared to those that existed before the pandemic; “This speaks highly of the reactivation,” he added.
