My first impression was being inside a dinosaur movie, the blue cannon has a touch of mysticism, mystery and supernatural charm, it has an indescribable fulminating energy.

The blue canyon is part of the World Heritage On real inland road, This place will take you to a Jurassic world, waiting for some huge dinosaur to come out.

the place is so amazing that you don’t need a professional camera to get dreamy pictures

You agree with me? 🙂

The Caves of the Mill Mules preserve cave paintings dating from the 16th and 17th centuries; the Tepehuans made hats, weapons, donkeys, horses and fines, the latter were striking for the pointy shape and stop of their ears.

📌Ask Esfuerzos Unidos Durango to give you detailed information on how to get to the Mulas cave.

The river crosses much of the mountain range, this wonderful water comes from the River Piaxtla.

In times of drought there is only one stream that covers only part of the canyon.

Jurassic Blue Canyon

Enjoy the stream, enjoy its waters that turn blue and green colors

branches and trees submerged in water

be careful, the water level can reach up to 2 meters.

Limestone rock

types of formations that were created by the passage of time creating this beautiful canyon, the whimsical rocks will hallucinate you creating an unreal environment.

Rock formations are quite interesting for climbing and rappelling, as long as you have experience and technique to do it, but there are also very good trails for cycling or walking in the forest.

Jurassic Blue Canyon

hike and intense sun

a path full of landscapes…

the tour is great but exhausting, I recommend you wear light clothes and carry lots of water

you will find flora and fauna of a desert climate, the road has a duration of 2 to 4 hrs if you want to travel widely.

The blue canyon is wet and impressive you will consider it as one of the most incredible canyons in America.


I don’t forget to mention the unique skies

In the summer it is the ideal season, small lagoons form and if you are a daredevil and know how to swim you can jump to feel the freshness of the water and relieve the heat produced by the walk.


The legend “man of the blue puddle”.

There is a legend of a creature living in the blue puddle, many of the people who live near the village claim to have seen it and describe its appearance as rough and furry as a wild werewolf.

At some time in the ’50s this legend generated controversy generating fear among children and people in general, some men said that this creature was responsible for the disappearance of cows and calves from their cattle for seasons, But the most skeptical people claimed it was just the coyotes and the big animals of the mountain range.

There are currently only rumors of this mysterious creature.


you have ever seen a cat in the water…as wild as its ancestors

of course I don’t recommend taking your pets to this beautiful place, unless it’s special and double nature like Prisky😇😾💚

I am a girl passionate about life, since I was 18 years old I started the adventure of knowing different places of Mexico and the world, my project is new and focuses on Mexico and take advantage of this beautiful country (details, small key points mean everything to me), once known the majority of the country move towards all Latin America (sometimes to go to other countries from other continents because no, the goal can change I get carried away by the surprises of life). I am restless minded, I like adventure and feeling to discover and see new natural places, I love culture, singing, sports, walking, I love the sea (it is my favorite site), animals, nature (not so much cities although their museums attract me) I’m an engineering student so I love science! I hope you have fun, come out of the cave and enjoy life with its black and white chips always with positivity will be beautiful and charming. I will show you options, part of my experiences to help you a little with my opinion and so you can know sites that you visualize and give you the curiosity to know (you can travel cheaply or as you prefer, the creativity left over) I also give myself my whims and tell you where to go so you can enjoy yourself to the fullest. In my personal blog I tell anecdotes (a very personal form of expression) experiences that are a product of travel.
