Western Mexico is an extraordinary place for people who love nature and the great outdoors.
It just so happens that all five of Mexico’s ecosystems converge in this area. This means that from Guadalajara you only have to drive a few hours in any direction to visit a pine forest, a lake, a mountain, a deep canyon, a sandy ocean beach or a still smoldering volcano. And in less than a day you can surely reach a desert, a hot spring or a jungle.
With so much biodiversity and geodiversity around you, the idea of camping overnight naturally occurs, even to people who have never pitched a tent in their lives: “I want to gaze in awe at a star-studded sky and fall asleep to the lullaby of crickets and frogs.”
At that moment, of course, comes the question: is it safe?
That’s when people come to someone like me.
