Durango is a Mexican federal state located in the northwest of the country. It is bordered by the states of Chihuahua to the north, Coahuila and Zacatecas to the east, Nayarit to the south, and Sinaloa to the west. Its capital is the city of Durango. Another important city is Gómez Palacio, just on the border to Coahuila. Durango is a huge state with a very low population density (the second-lowest of all Mexican states). Most people just cross it coming from or going to Chihuahua.
