San Cosme y Damián: Dunes in Serious Risk of Disappearing
“It feels great, knowing that, well, I thought no, this little ranch is very hidden, but it feels nice that it is being recognized in other countries and outside of Mexico,” said Margarito Ortiz, a resident of Samalayuca, Chihuahua.
The Samalayuca dunes are located about 50 kilometers from Ciudad Juarez and its fine sand allows for the practice of various extreme sports activities, such as sand boarding or off-road vehicle rides, as well as camping areas to enjoy the scenery.
The International Tourism Fair, awarded Mysticisms of the Desert, as the Samalayuca dunes were presented to the international tourism, which extend in an area of 56 thousand hectares of very fine silica sand that travels with the wind, constantly moving the dunes.
“We are very happy and very grateful for having selected Misticismos del Desierto as winner of the Tourism Excellence Award 2020, from Ciudad Juarez in Chihuahua we are very honored for such an important distinction”, insisted Francisco Moreno, Chihuahua Tourism Promotion.

“The Samalayuca Dunes surprised the world again, this time by capturing rainwater in its deepest vessels, as shown in the images published just seven hours ago, on its official page, by jeeperos of the Changuitos 4X4 Club from the profile of Ramon Ramos, one of its members,” he wrote.
He expressed that one hypothesis is that perhaps because of the pandemic, in which there was a long period of rest for the Dunes, as it happened in other parts of the planet, nature returned to have extraordinary manifestations, which due to the unsustainable exploitation of natural resources had ceased to present.
You, my kind reader, will surely be reading two days before, this April 8, this opinion article dedicated to the historical day: April 10, 2022 SUNDAY OF RAMOS, when the electoral exercise called “Revocation of Mandate” will take place.

ADOMPRETUR Peravia asks to intervene in Las Dunas
The Open City is made up of different ecosystems: beach coasts, dunes, free dunes, dead cliffs, sclerophyllous forest ravines, meadows with Mediterranean scrub, and a large part of the Mantagua Wetland.
In Ritoque is one of the most important dune fields of the central-northern coast of Chile, in which a characteristic zoning of dune formation is recognized from the beach, passing through the dunes and finally forming the interior free dune sea. These ecosystems are associated with interesting plant species of sandy substrates (Catastro 1984).
In 1970, Kholer proposed the Ritoque dunes as a “site of scientific interest” because they combine natural elements, specific vegetation, associated fauna and cultural elements, in addition to their strategic location given their proximity to industrial and urban centers and intense tourist activity.
Along the dunes in the sand dune ecosystem there are pre-Hispanic shells. These archaeological shells have remains of ceramics from the Bato, Llolleo and Aconcagua cultures that have populated the Ritoque area. This type of remains are currently national monuments.
