Other destinationsEdit

Sinaloa is rather like the country of Chile in that it is a long narrow strip of land with ocean on its west and mountains in the east. As a result there are a lot of overlooked beaches and mountain playgrounds for those willing to get off the beaten path and explore a bit.


Get inEdit

1 Los Mochis International Airport   (LMM IATA), 2 General Rafael Buelna International Airport   (MZT IATA), 3 Federal de Bachigualato International Airport   (CUL IATA).

Get aroundEdit


  • The Islands and Protected Areas of the Gulf of California — a UNESCO World Heritage site, shared with three other Mexican states





Stay safeEdit

Sinaloa has the highest murder rate of any state in Mexico, so be cautious (especially in the northern region).
