Here are the ten states of Mexico which have the longest coastlines. Note that these figures are those published by the National Statistics and Geography Information Institute (INEGI). We discussed the impossibility of ever measuring a coastline accurately in a previous post:

How long is Mexico’s coastline?

RankStateLength of coast (km)
1Baja California Sur2,131
2Baja California1,493
3Sonora1,209
4Quintana Roo1,176
5Veracruz720
6Sinaloa622
7Oaxaca568
8Guerrero522
9Tamaulipas433
10Campeche425

Only seven other states have a marine coast. They are Jalisco, Yucatán, Nayarit, Chiapas, Michoacán, Tabasco and Colima.

The remaining 15 states (counting the Federal District as a state) are land-locked.

Q. What are the likely impacts on economic activity of either (a) having a coastline or (b) being landlocked?
