The governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz Coppel, and the federal tourism secretary, Miguel Torruco Marqués, began construction of the new Mar de Cortés Aquarium, which is projected to be the largest in Mexico and Latin America.
Mazatlan will take care of the treasures of the ocean
With an investment of 1 billion 400 million pesos in construction, maintenance and operation work, the state executive indicated that the building will be part of the Central Park, a space that aims to offer new attractions to tourists.
The aquarium will have a construction surface of 12 thousand square meters in two levels of the exhibition of marine and avian species, where there will be fish tanks that will house 4.6 million liters of water.
"That this is an aquarium that will be very important in the education, training, and welfare of the Mazatlan, Sinaloa families and all the tourists that come to visit us," the governor explained.
During the ceremony of placing the first stone of the aquarium, Secretary Torruco Marqués said that the construction of this new tourist product will keep Mexico and Sinaloa on the international sideboard.
After this act, the governor and the federal secretary also gave support to the public bicycle system called Muevete Chilo Sinaloa, which aims to place Mazatlan on the agenda of sustainable mobility.
With a rate of five pesos for a trip, the bicycle system will seek to speed up short transfers at low cost, as well as in a healthy, safe and ecological way for the population.
For Torruco Marqués, this system of sustainable mobility, similar to the one implemented in Mexico City, is very important, since by counting Mazatlan with it, a more attractive option is offered for the transfer of tourists.
