  • It is a natural wonder that you can't miss. The pinacate is the name of the volcano not erupted and whose craters at the ground level allowed the lava output what is volcanic rock in the desert. Typical flora and fauna of the desert. The Museum is super and explains everything in simple manner illustrative ymuy. The staff is super attentive. Visit it early, especially in summer.
