johntravennerDuring a visit to Mazatlan by the General Consul of the Consulate of the United States in Hermosillo, John Tavenner recognized that although Sinaloa retains a travel alert to its American citizens, Mazatlan is kept outside this recommendation because of the good results that have been presented in the last three years.

johntravennerandcarlosfeltonIn a private meeting with the Mayor of Mazatlan, Mr. Carlos Felton, Travenner said that the U.S. Consulate in Sinaloa estimated that there are about 10,000 Americans who enter and reside temporarily or permanently and the return cruise was due to all efforts made by the Local and Federal Government to change the situation in Mazatlan, improve and strengthen security and creating and improving tourist areas.

Notably John Travenner has served as Consul General from 2011, ending his management at the end of July.
