coopercanyonDuring the familiarization trip, Asian operators enjoyed the sea lions, the Farallon and Bird Island, the cultural wealth of magical town El Fuerte and the delicious cuisine of Sinaloa, ending the trip in the mountains of the Copper Canyon.

The Secretary Francisco Cordova said the importance and impact that would have this niche market for Sinaloa, as are travelers with high purchasing power and a large average overnight in the destinations they visit.

Following the interest shown, the Ministry of Tourism will be working together to attract this type of visitor to other regions of Mexico, tracing an attractive route: Copper Canyon-Sinaloa-Los Cabos.
