Mexico has 67 national parks spread throughout the country in 23 different states. From Desierto de Los Leones, established in 1917, the oldest national park in Mexico, to Revillagigedo Islands National Park, the newest national park in Mexico, was established in 2017. Six of Mexico’s national parks are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites, and seven are UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. Preserving the extraordinary history, culture and biodiversity within Mexico is vital to the Mexican identity and economy. These national parks draw millions of visitors each year and provide the monetary and economic support necessary to protect these natural and historical wonders for future generations to enjoy.
