“This connectivity responds to the increase on the tourism demand for the magical place that was in the past the first capital of the Californias, Loreto. With this, it is expected to attract more tourists from abroad as well as nationals from Mexico. They will be able to discover the richness, cultural, gastronomic and adventure experience this zone has to offer to the world. This provides to the entire state a meaningful projection in the international and national Tourism Market”. The Secretary of Tourism, Economy and Sustainability (SETUES), Luis Genaro Ruiz Hernandez pronounced these words.
