Northern Region

The traditional flavor of the norteños

This land is the birthplace of our regional cuisine, with dishes like the famous cabrito al pastor (spit-roasted goat meat) and the semitas de Bustamante, seetbread legacies of the Colonial Era.

If you’re traveling from north to south , you might want to hunt in Anáhuac, visit the Museum of Weapons in Lampazos and explore the mysterious Bustamante grottos. Don’t miss the Temple of San José with its gold-leaf covered churrigueresque altarpiece, located in Sabinas Hidalgo.

Find refreshment in El Sabinal Natural Park of Cerralvo. There you can spend a peaceful afternoon in the shade of huge 500-year-old juniper trees.

Sport fishermen should head to El Cuchillo, the largest water reservoir for human use in Latin America, located in the municipality of China, Nuevo León.


Most of this zone is comprised of plains, surrounded girdled to the southeast with the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental. It temperature is hot and dry most of the year, and most of the rivers in this zone are intermittent, carrying water flow only during the rain season.

The municipalities of the north region are:

Lampazos de Naranjo
Sabinas Hidalgo
Los Aldamas
Doctor Coss
General Bravo
General Treviño
Los Herreras
Melchor Ocampo
Los Ramones
