Coahuila is Mexico’s third-largest state, covering a total area of 151,563 square kilometers. According to historians, its name was derived from native terms for “flying serpent,” “place of many trees,” or place where serpents creep.” It also has other variations, such as Cuagüila and Cuauila. The state’s capital city is Saltillo.

Coahuila’s economy depends on coal reserves (over 95% of Mexico’s coal reserves), the automobile industry, silver, and gold production. Moreover, Lala, a dairy company, produces 40% of milk consumption and distribution in Mexico.

When it comes to tourism, Coahuila is known for Canal de la Perla, an underground tunnel, Sierra del Carmen mountain range, hot pools of Cuatrociénegas, Saltillo museums, and Dunas de Bilbao.
