The Durango Cathedral is located in the heart of the city and retains the same structure as when it was built. It was visited by Pope John Paul II and is considered one of the wonders of Mexico. At night, it's beautiful because the lighting is enamouring. Don't hesitate to visit if you are visiting Durango!
Ojuela Bridge was used for over 100 years to remove minerals and measures more than 300m. over a canyon of more than 100m. high. It is a suspension bridge that has remained for over a century and was used as a reference for the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It is majestic, timeless, and when you know the history, you will feel the wild charm which it jealously guards.
Normally, each year, my family organizes a trip to one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, called Mazatlan. The route is really beautiful and has a great diversity of landscapes that occasionally we stop to admire the beauty that nature provides. Incredibly diverse landscapes such as beautiful grassland areas the most beautiful tropical forests with natural phenomena such as fog and sunsets enable us to see these places in a unique way. Personally, I use it ti relax and find my inner peace.
The Devil's Backbone is a ridge in the Western Sierra Madre, an amazing place with a wonderful panorama of the mountains of Durango border of Sinaloa. Definitely a place to visit when traveling to the great Mexican Pacific Mazatlan. See the great "Baluarte Bridge"
As always, these photos were taken during a camping trip with some friends and our respective children. This time we stayed in a cabin, like a small home or hotel. You can also stay in a tent and enjoy the open air. It's a great place to fish, do water sports and other outdoor activities.
My madee said when I was little to Mazatlan it was around 6 to 7 hours down the old road where I went through the devil's backbone, but now with this amazing architecture you can get to be half the time on the way.
This is located in the Biosphere Reserve of Mapimi, near the town of the same name. The whole region is a basin that receives runoff from the Nazas River.
Millions of years ago, the area was under the Tethys Sea so you can still find plenty of fossils around. Due to its geographical location and the fact that it's a basin, it's impossible for Hertzian waves to be transmitted. Therefore, no electronic appliance will work.
There are tales of UFO sightings and tourists getting lost because their trusted GPS stopped working. We arrived at a camping area with a stove, bathrooms, and tables located near the entrance to the park. The owners, Sergio and Julia, offer tours of the place and give you a good chance to see some animals in the wild. They also offer horseback-rising.
There's also a small museum showing the remains of the original buildings.
