First Class service on the Chepe from Chihuahua through Copper Canyon to El Fuerte is one of the greatest train rides in the world. I took a tour group of 33 on it. Every year we do one somewhere in the world and this was among the best. Imagine a train through the Grand Canyon but four times larger! Also... More

Takes 6 hours, but it was a lot of fun, good service, clean, food descent. Interesting lineup in the morning, You line up along the tracks, hundreds of you. Outside, no station to speak of.

This was the most beautiful train ride. The scenery was fantastic. If you have a choice between 1st and 2nd class don't bother with first class. The only difference is the dining car, the food is not included. 2nd class has burritos and drinks.

For sure Will be a fantastic experience in your life. My recomendation is to start this trip from Chihuahua rail station to Divisadero station. There you could enjoy the view, and spend the night at Divisadero Hotel (Expensive) or go to Creel Town by bus (45min) and be back at 12pm to continue until El Fuerte, another beutiful place!

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....

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
