Sierra de Álamos-Río Cuchujaqui (Álamos-Cuchujaqui River Range)

Álamos

The Sierra de Alamos is located between mountains and the northernmost jungles of the northern hemisphere, with a combination of pine and oak forests. Due to its geographical location, it is one of the most diverse and biologically rich places in Sonora.

The protected area is located within the geographical provinces of the Sierra Madre Occiental and the llanura Costera del Noroeste de México (Northwest Coastal Plains of Mexico).

In the place you can see more than 1,200 species of plants, 120 species of daytime butterflies, an extensive variety of insects, arachnids, among other animals, such as desert tortoises, bats, and 500 species of vertebrates, of which 351 are birds highlighting the green macaw, the mountain parrot and the magpie copetona, to name a few.

The area is ideal for ecotourism, since you can practice mountain biking, hiking, flora and fauna observation, camping and trekking. Nearby is the Río Cuchujaqui (Cuchujaqui River), where you can do some water sports like kayaking and spend a whole day in the middle of the mountains enjoying the natural wealth it has.

It is worth mentioning that in the communities of Munihuaza, Güirocoa and La Labor de Santa Lucía, three Centros de Promoción para la Cultura Ambiental (Environmental Culture Promotion Centers) were built, whose objective is to promote the social participation of the local inhabitants and visitors, through the development of environmental education and cultural activities.
