Something in the air inspires romance, an ideal place for lovers…

Francisco Iriarte y Conde, first governor of the state declared Cosala the capital of the western state in 1826. He introduced printing in the Sonora and Sinaloa and it was in Cosala that the first newspaper of Sinaloa, “The Impartial Spectator” was published.

In its surroundings there are attractive places as the Vado Hondo waterfall and town reservoirs “Comedero” and “El Salto” a few miles from town. Both these lakes are stocked with large mouth bass. The museum of Mineralogy is highly interesting, it mainly displays photographs and documents on the history of mining in Sinaloa.
