Zona Turística

One of the most amazing places in Mexico is the imposing desert of countless dunes in the Chihuahua Desert, huge mountains of sand that shift continually and transform the horizon. Samalayuca Dunes are located 32 miles south of Ciudad Juarez

VENTURE IN THE SAND
Move among the fine white silica sand dunes that shift with the wind. Glide over the sand on a sandboard, ride a bike or a 4x4 vehicle, or walk alongside an experienced local guide who will teach you the secrets of the desert.

ENJOY THE STARS
After the high summer temperatures, and before the winter raises the sandstorms, autumn arrives with special, clear nights perfect for star-gazing. You will see why the area holds the Guinness Record for having assembled an astronomy class attended by more than two thousand people and using almost 500 telescopes.

VISIT THE HISTORICAL EJIDO OJO DE LA CASA SITE
Go over the western mountain range of the Sierra de Samalayuca and discover the 1500-year old petroglyphs of wild lambs, anthropomorphic figures of stars, witches, and gods.
