“México continues to flourish as one of the most popular vacation destinations for Canadians,” said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. “Combining Swoop’s ultra-low fare with the favorable exchange between the dollar and peso makes the value proposition of exploring México enticing for families and budget travelers alike.”

Mazatlán has been in the international spotlight do to its recent nomination for UNESCO’s Creative Cities designation in Gastronomy. With this, the destination is seeking to join 26 other cities in the world to have received this important designation. The Pearl of the Pacific has become a “foodies” nirvana for its wide variety of cuisine; from exquisite sea food, traditional cuisine with the authentic flavors of México to exotic international flavors inspired by Mazatlán’s French, Italian and German influence.

Forbes, one of the most trusted and most important magazines in the world, named Mazatlán the third best destination for North Americans to retire. Its 12 miles of beautiful beaches, exquisite cuisine of international fame, 4.5 miles of spectacular Malecón (boardwalk) with impressive sunsets, the highest natural lighthouse in the world, a Carnival with 120 years of tradition - the oldest in México – and affordability are some of the reasons why this Mexican Pacific resort town has earned this position.
