Trip to Mexico from BBNP

Boquillas del Carmen, known simply as Boquillas [boo-key-us], is a village in northern Mexico, west of the northern part of the Sierra del Carmen mountain range, and at the south-west end of the Rio Grande’s Boquillas Canyon on the southeastern part of Big Bend National Park. Join along our trip to Mexico from BBNP to this tiny village to see how does this village thrive and how is it like in there, as we enjoyed our visit, delighted in the boat rides across the Rio, truck/burro rides to the village, and met friendly people, heard good music, and especially tasted great food!

We really didn’t plan on therapeutic bathing after the hike to Big Bend Hot Springs or getting on the river or cross to Mexico side, but we just dipped our hands in it to feel the hot clear still water. It is recorded at 105 degrees all year round, and indeed, it felt warm and good. 😊.
