An excursion outside of Batopilas

This is probably not worth a trip on it's own, but since you've already braved the Creel to Batopilas road, you don't want to miss this. It's about 4K outside of town. Make... read more

This is probably not worth a trip on it's own, but since you've already braved the Creel to Batopilas road, you don't want to miss this. It's about 4K outside of town. Make sure you stop and enjoy the view as you come into town. You can walk down and cross the cable bridge for some great shots of the... More

The mission itself isn't that special, although it was much more interesting before they repainted it several years ago, but the location is pretty awesome.

We drove up to the mission in our 4 wheel drive SUV, a local went with us. When we asked what the people around there did he said "top secret", this is a big marijuana and opium poppy growing area, but the narcos leave the tourists alone. CHECK OUT MY REVIEW ON BATOPILAS FOR MORE INFO. The area is absolutely... More

Mildly interesting, but since they're re-building the road down from Creel to Batopilas, it's a 9 hour bone-jarring 4WD trip over nerve-wracking precipices.

I rode my motorcycle down just before sunset and got lots of great pictures. A local family came over and sold me some cute embroidery stuff. They were very photogenic and were quite plesant
