words only Mexican people or even CULICHIS* use,
and you might get confused, even if you speak
Spanish perfectly. So, to avoid these situations
(and have some fun) we will teach you some:

The airport, being the most important domestic gateway in
the state of Sinaloa, and the second on international
operations after Mazatlan International Airport, second
before Los Mochis International Airport has undergone major
construction consisting of a new terminal layout and a new
boarding system. It has two jet ways. In 2010, Culiacan
airport handled 1,059,904 passengers.
The day and time you arrive there will be for sure a
bunch of AIESECers waiting for you to greet you!
Culiacans bus terminal
We have this bus station since 2000 and it connects
Culiacan with the entire country by earth.
As of urban transportation comes, Culiacan has over 68
bus routes, so you can get everywhere you like. This
urban routes charge 7 pesos and if you are a student it
cost over 3.50 pesos per trip. We cant wait until you
experience a bus trip in our city, you will find them very
singular since they are like moving night clubs because
of the music they have, and if you are one of those
people who like defending their rights everywhere, you
will also have fun having arguments with the
unconsidered bus drivers sometimes.
This is all part of Culiacans charm.
NICE TO KNOW
MEXICAN FOOD: We wonder you are excited to taste the most delicious and appetizing food in the WHOLE WORLD! As you may know Mexican food is
SPICY and fun to eat. You shouldnt worry about this since the chilli on food is
optional to you.
Some of our traditional food:
TACOS SHRIMP COCKTAIL MEXICAN SUSHI
ENCHILADAS NACHOS GUACAMOLE
And many many more! VOLTAGE: As you may know, the voltage changes trough the different regions and so you will need a converter for 120 V. You can easily buy it here in
case you cant find it in your home country.
WE RECOMMEND : You bring light clothing, since even in winter the
temperature its around 16C the lowest. Summer is hot (30-36C).
So this is it!
Let the count down for your arrival begin

In case you need something dont doubt to approach any of us.
