pavlovich-semana-santa-2016In what was her first visit to Puerto Peñasco since taking office as Governor of Sonora last September, Claudia Pavlovich Arrellano reiterated her commitment to promote projects that continue to strengthen this port as a tourist destination of international caliber.

During her visit to Puerto Peñasco, the governor proclaimed a commercial flight connecting Puerto Peñasco to Cd. Juárez will begin at the end of June, which will undoubtedly broaden the area’s tourist market.

She detailed so far this year, there has been a 15% increase in tourism in the city given stronger confidence among visitors from both Mexico and abroad, interested in visiting Rocky Point’s beaches.

Pavlovich stressed the unconditional support to strengthen and move forward with projects such as the homeport, with assurances this would begin operations during her administration.

State Tourism Coordinator Antonio Berúmen indicated the state of Sonora is ready to receive an expected 2 million visitors over the Semana Santa break, many of whom will be staying in Puerto Peñasco given the more than 6000 rooms available to book across the city.

Accompanied by Puerto Peñasco Mayor Kiko Munro, along with the mayors of Sonoyta and Caborca, the governor visited the Tourism office in the Old Port and announced the launch of the “Más Control” program of the Sonoran Youth Institute, geared at helping to prevent alcohol related accidents during the vacation period. During the event, Mayor Munro presented the governor with a shrimp boat replica, christened Claudia 1, as a gift from the city.
