Very close to the picturesque centennial town of Alamos is a guardian of rich treasures. Explore La Aduana, which is waiting impatiently to charm you with its little stone houses resting in the middle of the forest in the Cuchujaqui Biosphere Reserve.

Tour the charming mining village built around the Virgen Balvanera Church, a seventeenth century Jesuit temple that is part of our historic heritage. You won’t want to miss a small shop that showcases beautiful local handmade crafts, located next to the church. 

Follow the stream or the road and explore the remains of the silver and turquoise mine, the old source of wealth that drove development in the area. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic view, which will definitely be worth the climb.

Ask area businesses about tours of the reserve. Friendly locals offer tours through the natural paradise that dominates the region, which is home to hundreds of plant and animal species.

Soak up in the beauty of the trails, dedicate time to bird watching, or enjoy the spectacular scenery while on a horseback ride. 

Explore this wonderful natural treasure, and discover all that it has to offer.
