Our name

We were looking for a name that comes from the region that would identify us for its greatness and strength. The Amapa tree is easily grown, adapts to the environment and climate changes. At the same time it enchants for its beauty and contains valuable properties. All these qualities were the inspiration to give the name of Amapa Tours to the company. This resistant tree is only found in the states of Sonora, Sinaloa and Chihuahua; and it covers with its colorful flowers the ravines through which the train crosses daily, the main product of our company.
