Cuervitos Dunes

Mexicali

Traveling approximately 10 minutes on the highway to Mexicali, there is a sea of golden sand dunes, considered the highest in the state of Baja California: Cuervitos Dunes, which has catapulted the destination as one of the best for sandboarding.

The sport consists of descending the mounds, on a board. Rookies can do it sitting down, but once they manage to keep their balance, they stand up and challenge dunes up to 40 meters (131 feet) high.

One more spectacle is added to the landscape, seeing how the wind changes the shape of the dunes. Since not everything is surfing, you can also drive buggies and ATVs through ramps and natural tracks, which add complexity and adrenaline.

Dunas de Cuervitos belong to the small town of Los Algodones, one of the borders between California and Arizona. This town is frequented by elderly tourists from the United States and Canada who seek high-level medical services at affordable prices, such as dentists, ophthalmologists and surgeons of various specialties.

Otro atractivo son los campos de algodones, mismos que se aprecian tupidos en septiembre. Por lo tanto, la mayoría de las Handicrafts que se elaboran están hechas con este material.

Another attraction is the cotton fields, which are dense in September. Therefore, most of the crafts are made with this material.
