Northern Mexico
Copper Canyon- world famous Canyon, 2nd largest in the World (behing Hell's Canyon in the USA). It is much larger and deeper than the world's most famous Canyon, The Grand Canyon. Isla Tiburon- the largest Island in Mexico, located in the Sea of Cortez and a part of the state of Sonora. Sierra del Carmen-- just across the river from Big Bend NP. This is the largest wilderness area in Latin America north of Patagonia. Owned and preserved by Monterrey's CeMex corporation (which has a strong tradition of conservation projects). No tourist infrastructure in place, but if you're self-sufficient this area is certainly worth exploring. Paquime - archaelogical site at Casas Grandes in a remote area of Chihuahua. Related to Pueblo culture of southwestern United States. Cuatro Cienegas - protected nature preserve with unique desert oasis ecosystem. Snorkling and swimming is allowed in some pools. Reserva de la Biosfera El Cielo - unusual subtropical rain forest in Tamaulipas, just a few hours drive south of U.S./Mexico border
