“El Chepe” and Mazatlan have a connection in 2020


International press highlights Mazatlan as an ideal destination in 2020

Sinaloa and the Costa Barrancas Tourism Committee come together to highlight both destinations in a single route from Mazatlan to Chihuahua on the El Chepe train.

“Travel Weekly”, international media dedicated to the tourism industry, highlighted Mazatlan among the five destinations to visit in Mexico this 2020. The portal also indicated that the port expects 2,200 new hotel rooms for the year in the categories four and five stars in 2020, equivalent to a 15 percent increase.

In this regard, the Secretary of Tourism of Sinaloa, Óscar Pérez Barros, described the publication of this international medium as positive and added that the above is the result of the tourism projection work carried out by the state government, in addition to works such as the construction of the New Aquarium, which will be the largest in Latin America, and the total renovation of the Malecon.

He explained that Sinaloa and the Tourism Committee of Costa Barrancas unite with the objective of continuing to improve the tourist vision of the state, that is why both destinations can be traveled in a single trip, from Mazatlan to Chihuahua or vice versa on the El Chepe train.

Perez Barros concluded that tourists will be able to go from Mazatlan to Los Mochis in fast and comfortable means of transportation, which is the gateway to Barrancas del Cobre and the starting point for the El Chepe train.
