The remote borderland mountains of Big Bend have long attracted the adventurous, who dream about what lies just over the horizon, across the Rio Grande. Currently, all lands for almost 100 miles south of the Rio Grande from Big Bend National Park, fall into a one of 4 Mexican Natural Protected Areas.
Since the late 1990’s, a consortium of private landowners and Cementos Mexicanos, CEMEX, have collectively purchased and protected almost half a million acres of Maderas del Carmen. The project, Reserva Natural El Carmen, is a model of conservation and restoration. For 30 years, there has been no public access to this amazing location.
Beginning February 27, 2020, in close coordination with CEMEX Nature, Go Big Bend will offer 4 day, 3 night tours to Reserva Natural El Carmen each month except January and December. Group size is limited to 6-12 persons. Tours February, March, April and November run Thursday-Sunday. Tours May through October run Friday through Monday. Dates and further details to be published soon. For more information and to receive updates, email email@example.com. On Facebook, like us at Go Big Bend as well as Visit Boquillas
