Because we LOVE it here! Mexican Tile Designs.com is located in the southwest corner of Colorado, near the four corners where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado all come together. This blog is about Durango, not about Mexican Tile and Talavera Tile, because we want you to also come visit our beautiful town and our store and see why our family-owned company is located here.
Durango is perfectly situated between three ecological/geologic zones: basin and Range, high desert, and mountain. That means we get to explore and play in all three, depending on the weather and our mood! Just south of us is the high desert of Taos and Santa Fe with ancient Puebloan ruins of Aztec Ruins and Chaco Canyon on the way.

Just to the West is Mesa Verde National Park, and Utah with amazing canyon country, Moab mountain biking, river rafting, Arches National Park and much more!

All of that is outside of Durango, but the town itself is pretty amazing too! It’s home to the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway, the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic, Fort Lewis College and a bunch of crazy, fun people like us who love living here!
