San Franciscoo de Asis ChurchThe word Navolato is derived from the term "Navo" meaning "prickly pear". This is the youngest Municipality in the State. Its creation came about because of a decree issued on August 2, 1982.

Before that date Navolato was part of the Municipality of Culiacan. There is an excellent four lane highway from Culiacan to Navolato spanning the distance of 30 Kilometers.

Modern buses make runs between these two cities. Some of the highlights when visiting Navolato are touring "Ingenio La Primavera", the local sugar mill, the beautiful church of San Francisco de Asis and the central plaza.

 Altata BeachThere is a number of old colonial type homes that are of great interest. 29 Kilometers further west from Navolato is the enticing Bay of Altata with soft surf and very fine sand, here one can enjoy boat rides and swimming. The beach of El Tambor is 15 minutes away from Altata, it offers high san dunes and strong surf. Of great interest are fishing camps of "El Castillo", "Yameto", Dautillos", "Las Aguamitas", and "El Tetuan". Vegetable packing plants earmarked for exporting constitute an interesting activity as this is a predominantly farming region. The "Sugar Cane Fair" is celebrated in Navolato during the mont of May.
