Culiacan | Vacations and Travel to Culiacan
Culiacan is the capital of the state of Sinaloa and is known as "The Breadbasket of Mexico" for its high level of agricultural production. The land here is extraordinarily fertile and it has a developing economy, mainly as a result of successful farming and an active commercial infrastructure. Culiacan combines the provincial lifestyle to perfection with modern comforts, and it's the commercial, political, and social heart of the state. The city is irrigated by three rivers, two of which, the Humaya and the Tamazula, converge in the city to form the third, the Culiacan.
Fertile and Industrial Lands
The city is known for the impressive cultivation of its valley, and agriculture plays a big part in the economy. In addition to the rivers, the area is home to large hydraulic constructions like dams and irrigation channels. The main products that are exported from the region are tomatoes, pumpkin, chili, cucumber, potato, melon, watermelon, and mangos. Other products popular in the area include sugarcane and grains like beans and corn.
The city has a hot climate with a high level of humidity, especially in the summer, ideal conditions for agricultural production. Culiacan is also home to food production as well as textile, bottling and machinery industries. Other relevant industries include fishing and cattle.
The beauty of this territory and the surrounding area is complemented by an abundance of natural resources and the warmth of the people. This is why they say that the people of Culiacan "harvest smiles" in addition to a wide variety of agricultural produce!
