Samalayuca Dunes Excursion
The Samalayuca Dunes are located in the middle of the desert in northern Chihuahua state, only 30 minutes from Ciudad Juárez. If you have never had the opportunity to stand in a real desert landscape, such as the Sahara, now is your chance.
We will visit the desert for both fun and food. Starting out we’ll enjoy several hours of adventure. You can choose to do a Jeep or ATV ride through the dunes for amazing views and a few thrills. Or you can choose to try the sport of sandboarding, similar to snowboarding but on a totally different material. Or you can choose to take a walk and learn about the dunes from a naturalist’s perspective.
Then it is on to the food portion of the event. We’ll start with a tasting and lesson on Sotol, the distilled beverage native to Chihuahua that is similar to tequila. We’ll then have a “Mysticism at the Desert” lunch, full of food local to this area of Mexico.
We will be chaperoned from our hotel in El Paso to the desert via bus and escorted throughout our time in Mexico. Come see how the locals vacation!
