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

Recently, we did a 3 day tour from Creel down to Batopilas in the Copper Canyon, Mexico, with Cesar. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip & he was an excellent guide and driver. Also, very knowledgeable & spoke excellent English.

Three Amigos put a fantastic trip together for us from El Fuerte to Chihuahua. The entry via El Chepe train journey from the coast to the top of the Sierra Madre was the appertiser only to the feast to come. The trip into Batapilas and stay there was the highlight. Riverside Lodge was a delight, together with Shepherd's silver smelter... More
