Mexico National Parks and Culiacan Car Rental
Experience nature like you have never before when you travel with your Culiacan car rental. Mexicos National Parks are some of the most beautiful in the world. National parks, biosphere reserves, ecological reserves, and marine underwater parks are all a part of the System of Natural Protected Areas in Mexico (La Sistema Nacional de Areas Naturales Protegidas or SiNAP). These areas are managed by the National Ecology Institute (Instituto Nacional de Ecologia or INE).
How it all began
The majority of national parks were created in the 1930s under the administration of Lazaro Cardenas, who created the Department of Forestry, Fish and Game, which supervised the designation of forty parks, based on scenic beauty, recreational potential and ecological value. Designed by Quevedo, the park system emphasizes Mexico's highland forests. It is thanks to Miguel Angel de Quevedo that visitors can get to experience Mexicos national parks. He lobbied that international tourism would be beneficial for both rural Mexicans and international visitors.
Much to see
There is much more to see than trees and plant life when you travel with your Culiacan car rental. Although national parks are often not the most biologically diverse areas in Mexico, they are worth going for historical and aesthetic reasons. The volcanoes are national parks. So are many of the archaeological sites. Tourists visit Mexicos National Parks because of the scientific or historical value, or simply for the tourism programs available.
Entering the biosphere
After visiting one of Mexicos National Parks why dont you visit a biosphere reserve with your Culiacan car rental? Biosphere reserves have 3 major goals: conservation, training, and sustainable human development that is compatible with conservation. Unlike national parks, biospheres allow people to live in protected natural areas. Research is done to encourage the use of sustainable resources in the local community. Residents can also benefit from the ecotourism. Within the biosphere reserves, Mexico uses a zoning system that allows the use of parks for tourism and scientific study to occur harmoniously. The idea was proposed by Mexican scientist Enrique Beltran.
What to see
The San Lorenzo Marine Archipelago National Park is a national park in Mexico that is best known for being the most important ecological areas of the Gulf of Mexico. Located on San Lorenzo Island, a part of an archipelago in the Gulf of Mexico the island is important as a commercial, cultural, and recreation center. The island houses a rich ecosystem of a wide variety of flora and marine fauna. The San Lorenzo Marine Archipelago National Park is also home to several vulnerable and endangered species.
