Do this! It's an incredible drive (thankful we had a driver and weren't doing it ourselves). Beautiful views. Not much after you get to town but it's quaint and comfortable, full of 'real' people. We enjoyed it.

I fully recommend this trip as it is truly unique. Its not for the fainthearted or ones who easily get a queasy stomach. The many curves and hairpin turns are endless. Even though the road now consists of two lanes and is almost fully asphalted, it is still not easy to navigate as huge rocks and stones of any size... More

We were in batopilas in April in was a long trip (4) hours, due to land slides that were not cleared by anyone. It is still worth the trip! Very nice people in the town, met the mayor, went through the museum & had dinner with a local family home!!! Would like to go back, never felt uncomfortable, or worried... More

I just booked a car and driver through the hotel to drive us down to Batopilas. First, it's an amazing trip, but it is not for anyone not willing to experience the joy of traveling to a hard to reach destination. The trip down only took about 3.5 hours. We stopped to take great pictures. The scenery all the way,... More

We are senior (hubby is 75, I am 69), but adventurous. We traveled to Batopilas at night due to the road being closed due to construction during the day, came across many landslides, many rocks in the road, and the road was mainly dirt, very dangerous and steep, had to cross a couple very rickety wood bridges, so the trip...

What a lovely little turn of the century silver mining village! The eight hour drive to get there from Creel was one of the most hair raising experiences I have ever had. At points, with a sheer drop beyond belief, the road was being built in front of us. For a small "money gift" they made way for us. The... More

After riding the train from El Fuerte to Creel, a friend and I took the 3 Amigos tour to Batopilas. The ride down through the canyons was such a breathtaking and amazing adventure that I feel it is an essential element to any trip to the Copper Canyon. Our driver, Noel Gonzalez from Creel, was the perfect tour guide. His... More

The road to Batopilas is memorable...not for sissies! Interesting silver mining history so visit the museum, Sheperd's now ruined home and a mine if you can. Good hiking area, especially to the old church.

That would be in a comfortable SUV as part of a 3 Amigos Tour, if such is available when you're there. Unfortunately it wasn't in my case, so I took the hard way down -public bus (van) packed to the gills with coughing locals, and hitchhike back up. It was all still worth it. It's a completely different world down... More

Batopilas. 11/2013. This village is at the bottom of the Canyon, sometimes accessible by a 4 1/2 hour bus ride from Creel. They are attempting to put in a paved road for the last 10 miles which is currently dirt. The last hour will be a wild ride. Due to a Rockslide we were not able to take the normal... More
