Very close to Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), you will experience a truly unique experience.
Put on your explorer shoes because an adventure that is second to none is expecting you. Your destination is the El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve, a place so magical that it still witnesses sacred ceremonies of the Tohono people, legendary settlers of the area. The desert paradise is so spectacular that, according to the O'odham cosmogony, it is the center of the creation of the universe.

DISCOVER THE UNIQUE BEAUTY OF THE RESERVATION


Explore the Picos del Pinacate, a group of volcanic pines and ash cones with such unique characteristics that the dazzling display of colorations that the rocky soil exhibits is not the most impressive of the place.

MEET THE ENDEMIC FLORA AND FAUNA


Lose your breath in the face of enormous sand and ash dunes, the largest of America, forming beautiful figures visible from space. Tour the Sanctuary, which will surprise you with the beauty of its desert, home to hundreds of shrubs, small trees, and other plants which host and feed various animals, including some protected species such as the monster of Gila.

EXPLORE VOLCANIC CRATERS


Be surprised by incredible craters, immense wounds that powerful eruptions of groundwater, mixed with lava, left in the earth thousands of years ago when the volcano did not sleep yet. Explore El Elegante, the largest of them, which boasts a titanic diameter of 1500 meters, as well as its 8 smaller, but no less imposing, brothers.
