Mexico is a privileged country, because its geographical position (its access to the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the division made by the Tropic of Cancer) makes it a megadiverse area, being home to at least 12% of the world's species, 12 thousand of them being endemic.

Although the Tropic of Cancer divides the country into two climatic zones – one temperate and the other tropical – the truth is that the altitude, latitude and distribution of land and water mean that in the national territory Up to seven types of climate are identified: warm subhumid, dry, semidry, dry desert, warm humid, temperate subhumid, temperate humid and cold.

In this panorama, it is not strange that in the upper parts of Chihuahua The thermometer reaches -30 degrees, while in the Mexicali desert, in the north of the country, it rises to 50 degrees Celsius.

As proof of this is San Luis Rio Coloradoa city located in Sonora and located on the borders of the Great Altar Desert of Baja California and the state of Arizona and which is well known for holding the record for the highest temperature recorded in the country, after the 6 On July 1966, the thermometer rose to 58.5 degrees Celsius.
