Walk through the Gypsum Dunes. Watch how the landscape changes and the soil gradually becomes a fine white sand.

It is said that millions of years ago, Coahuila was part of the Sea of Tethys, which due to the movement of tectonic plates, turned into lagoons that evaporated until only the heaviest salt remained, which is the gypsum that now forms the white dunes in present-day Cuatro Cienegas.

Enter this incredible white desert among dunes and basins and find multiple natural gypsum sculptures that time and erosion have molded into a wonderful white crystal.

Marvel at the sunset and be amazed at how the sunlight dyes the white dunes that turn red, pink or orange depending on the time of day, weather and location from where you admire the spectacle.
