Coahuila is the land if dinosaurs and of the understanding of the origins of life. This is no exaggeration. This state forms a part of the Cuatro Ciénegas Biosphere Reserve, the place where the oldest known evidence of life on Earth has been found.
According to José Vasconcelos, the meaning of the name Coahuila comes from the Náhuatl words coatl and huila, which together mean “snake that flies”. The majority of the state has a climate that fluctuates from dry to very dry and has an annual average temperature of 64 to 72°F. The state of Coahuila borders with the United States to the north, Nuevo León to the east, Zacatecas to the south and Durango and Chihuahua to the west. Coahuila has seven Magical Towns: Cuatro Ciénegas, Arteaga, Viesca, Candela, Guerrero, Múzquiz and Parras.
