Mexico National Parks

Cuatro Cienagas

Mexico protects six percent of its territory in over 90 conservation areas.

Biosphere reserves are the areas where nature is protected and preserved - the areas of biodiversity.

Mexico national parks are very often designated so for either their historical value or for their beauty.

Cuatro Ciénegas is an oasis in the Mexican desert which provides refuge to 400 cacti and 77 species which are not found anywhere else on the planet.

Los Remedios, north of Mexico City provides an escape with a cool climate for the city slickers.

Lagunas de Montebello National Park contains 60 lakes of water in varying shades of blue and green sourrounded by forest. Maya Chinkultic ruins are also within the Lagunas de Montebello national park.

A number of Mexico's national parks are UNESCO world heritage listed sites.
