Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Highlighting the importance of the economic impact that this event would have on the port of Mazatlán, the Secretary of Tourism, Óscar Pérez Barros, pointed out that the port is not only “beach and sea.”

The event, which will take place from February 20 to 21, will be a unique opportunity to show the other side of Mazatlan tourism because as Pérez Barros pointed out, most visitors consider that Mazatlán is only sand and sea.

Governor's Cup

“They just see us as the beach and the sea and the weevil (referring to the fish) that’s how they see us from the outside, they don’t know there is more, the world record is held by the Picachos Dam, you get up to a hundred a day (fish) is the prey that produces more fish and more seabass worldwide, “said the official.

He said he estimated that the spill could exceed one million pesos, however thanks to this series of events that will be taking place in the port, they will serve to try to compensate for the lack of massive events that were suspended due to the health emergency.
