The area is largely desert with saguaro cactus, desert scrub, and prickly pear. Most of the land is too arid and dry for farming, making cattle ranching a more preferable choice. Criminals and gangs roam freely across the region, meaning that getting lost can lead to dire consequences. The region consists of wide open desert plains and low lying hills with small rocky canyons and cliffs with jagged peaks. Trees are few and far in between, with the largest source of water in the region being Lake Don Julio.
This is the region where the player first begins the game following the journey in the opening cinematic.
