Madera, the shortest way into the past

even though I don´t live in Madera, I have been doing work there since 2002. I am a freelance video maker and web developer based in Chihuahua City, who also happens to have a second nature for exploring the outdoors. I was required to make a documentary video on the archaeological sites that the municipality has, and I was amazed at the richness I found. Whether it is about historical events, archaeology, magnificent sights and many other eco touristic activities, this place I feel has a very strong cultural importance and so much potential for eco tourism.

Madera is the doorway to the Sierra Madre Occidental Northwestern end. Here you can find different tourist attractions like: archaeological trails -- Choose from four different hikes into the cliff dwellings of the Paquime Culture, keen to the Anazasi and Mogollon in USA, bird watching -- You can visit one of the nesting spots for the thick-billed parrot or the eared quetzal, rafting -- plunge into the Papigochi River rapids (category 3), camping -- If something the Sierra Madre has, is camping places; although rustic. But after all, is it not what you look for when you eco travel? , sightseeing -- At the edge of the Sierra Madre Occidental, Madera is in the middle of many beautiful sights: from high mountain forests, to deep canyons, to grasslands and a valleys, you must not miss it!
