Our trip on the Chepe (Chihuahua El Pacifico Express) was the most spectacular ride. It took about 12 hours from the capital Chihuahua to Los Mochis. We bought a one way ticket on the 1st class train and another for the return on the economic train. The train passes through many tunnels and spectacular cliffs similar to the Colorado Canyon....

We paid to travel in the first class. For the first two hours it is a pretty standard train ride, nothing spectaclur to see. Seata re comforatble. It's during this time that all the passengers seem to migrate up to the dinning cart for breakfast. My husband basicaly had most of the first class section to ourselves. Eventualy people returned...

The views are spectacular from the little town call Creel all the way to Del Fuerte station. I recommend to jump off the train in Creel, rent an all terrain motorcycle and visit the Arareko lake for some boat rowing and then go to the Cusarare waterfall. All togheter it will take around 5 or 6 hours. You can choose... More

We took the train from Chihuahua to Los Mochis and it was really amazing! The experience is spectacular, the views, the timing, the cleaning of the train and its operability. People on board give some good explanations about the canyons and recommendations too! This is an amazing and overwhelming experience, it's got some details though that I will sum up... More

Leaves on time at 6 am. Seats have Plenty of space, ask for area of four seats so can take a nap or strech your legs. Dinning car very good, maybe a bit over price. Fantastic views, plenty of tunnels and bridges. We returned to chihuahus on a Van, saved 1 1/2 hr compared to chepe but honestly is more... More

Amazing views of the Chihuahua Sierra, a must see !! You can leave the train overnight to stay at one of the hotels around copper canyon (deeper and longer than the grand canyon) and then take it back the next day to continue the journey to Los Mochis

I started out by taking a bus down to Los Mochis and climbing on the economy train. Then, (probably in 2006), the fare was $66.00 US one-way to Chihuahua. The trip took 18 hours one-way and was more than terrific. No food or water on the train so stopping often is the only way to buy stuff along the way.... More

I just got back from Copper Canyon on El Chepe. I have to say that it was a beautiful, unique trip, with some problems in between. The train is really nice- you can pay for either first class or economic, depending on the day and direction. There is a website you can look at in English or Spanish and it... More

I was in Cuauhtemoc on a business trip and had one day off. I decided to take a ride on Chepe to Divisadero and back. I have heard a lot, but I never thought that it would be so beautiful! It was a fantastic trip. Will do it again next time.

From sea level to 8,400 ft. in 10 hrs. Many, many tunnels and trestles with incredible views and a 180 degree switchback inside the mountain! An old style narrow gauge railway with first and second class, as well as a dining car. Food's ok, but killer coffee! It is the only passenger train still in operation in Mexico and is... More
