The hand-operated ferry at Los Ebanos, Texas.

The Los Ebanos Ferry or El Chalán, formally known as the Los Ebanos-Diaz Ordaz Ferry, is a hand-operated cable ferry that travels across the Rio Grande between Los Ebanos, Texas and Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, Tamaulipas. It is the last of its kind along the entire stretch of the Rio Grande.[1][2] The city of Los Ebanos was named after the Texas Ebony (Ebenopsis ebano) that anchors the ferry.[3]
