Dunas de las Pintas (Las Pintas Dunes)

San Felipe

These white sand formations are the ideal scenario for the practice of sandboarding, a sport very similar to snowboarding, but instead of doing it on the snow, you will do it on impressive mountains of sand.

If you leave from Mexicali to San Felipe, on the way you'll find the Dunas de las Pintas, which have appeared in countless movies and commercial videos.

Their existence is a whim of the wind. The air sweeps the sand from the Laguna Salada and it accumulates in this area until it forms enormous hills that take shape as nature guides them.

It is possible to observe travelers on ATVs going up and down the hills that form the dunes, as well as people sliding on boards and, sometimes, television and film productions doing their job.

Hold on tight and enjoy the adventure, tranquility and excitement that San Felipe in Baja California, an oasis between the desert and the Sea of Cortés, gives you.
