Chihuahua is located in the northwestern part of Mexico, and its capital city bears the same name. There has been a longstanding debate among historians and linguists about the etymology of the state’s name, but the most accepted theory is that it was derived from the Nahuatl language meaning “the place where the water of the rivers meet.” 

Chihuahua state is the largest in Mexico, with an area of 247,455 square kilometers. It has more forests than any other state in Mexico, with a large variety of fauna and flora. It also boasts mountainous terrain and river valleys. The greatest attraction in the state is Las Barrancas del Cobre (Copper Canyon), a large and deep canyon system.
