Roberto Arellano, president of the Mazatlan Association of Real Estate Professionals, pointed out that after the Tianguis Turístico, Mazatlan has undergone a positive change in its infrastructure and amenities. He stated that the remodeling of avenues such as Rafael Buelna, Camarón Sábalo, Gabriel Leyva, and Gaviotas Street, among others, have undoubtedly changed the face of the destination.

"With this change, new investments have come to the city, not only from condominium towers and subdivisions but also from hotels and restaurants," he said. This has also motivated local and foreign investors to invest in the destination, which in this pandemic is the first thing that is beginning to recover.

For his part, Julio Birrueta, director of the Mazatlan Association of Hotels and Tourism Companies, acknowledged that Mazatlan needs to renew itself as a product; we need to do many things and one of the main ingredients is the private invasion because innovations are what will be offered to visitors and the local segment.

"All this is a challenge for those who invest, but in the end, it is what is giving added value to Mazatlan," he explained. Mazatlan has been on a good streak for several years now, even with the Covid pandemic it has not left first place in hotel occupancy in the whole country, mainly due to the strength and loyalty of national tourism.
