In my imagination the Sonora state resembles the actress Maria Felix, the delicious flour tortillas Caborca, the gardens of houses in Alamos, the Sea of ​​Cortez, the tang of bacanora, however, now, also been thinking about this I refer to the action. Recognizing Sonora
I had already seen the sinuosity of the Sierra Madre Occidental, since then I fell in love with its mountains, so close to the tropics,

I came directly to Los Alamos, I’ve always liked for its colonial houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, its orchards and gardens where they grow mangoes and pomegranates and seek beautiful flower beds, pools and fountains.

Then I went to Huatabampo (“Sauce on the Water” Cahita language), where the first thing I did was give me a swim at the beach and I was ready for the next stop: the mouth of the Rio Mayo, and back to water take a kayak trip to the sand dunes. The Mayo is the second largest river in Sonora and one of the few with perennial streams, their waters have subsided with the construction of a dam and are used for irrigation. By boat you can make a nice route and arrive at Santa Barbara, a town in May. And for lovers of photography, the ride offers amazing scenery.

The time paddling to reach the dunes is about 40 minutes and believe me, it is worthwhile to do a river and join sand dunes in turn are attached to the sea, is not an everyday thing. And in the dunes, you can practice
