Wonderful scenery. Leave the train at various stations to spend the night at local hotels and to look around the area.
I boarded the train in Los Mochis and disembarked in Chihuahua with stays of one night each at two stops at Copper Canyon. Two days were spent on the Express and one day on the economy train. The cars, including the bathrooms, were clean and comfortable although somewhat old. Conductor, car porters and guards were courteous and helpful. I had... More
On a whim while staying at the Sol Mar Hotel in Cabo, we decided to go on an adventure. A little research and we decided on the Copper Canyon. We drove our rented VW Bug to the little airstrip outside Cabo and off we flew. Cruising over the Sear of Cortez at only a few hundred feet me and my... More
We went on the 1st class train, the construction of the track is an engineering feat, tunnels, bridges. It was a very comfortable trip.
Our group got on in El Fuerte and got off in Posada Barrancas at the Urique rim of the Copper Canyon. Nice hotels in both these places. The train tracks wind thru many tunnels and across many bridges thru rugged terrain, making this an engineering feat that took almost 100 years. It goes from sea level to 8,000 ft in... More
We had a Copper Canyon tour on our bucket list for many years and in 2012 we finally did it in conjunction with a trip to the Baja which included a one week kayak trip on the Sea of Cortez. We did the trip from the west side which complicated the logistics, we had to fly from Los Cabos to... More
NOV,2013. We took the train from El Fuerte to the Copper Canyon. If interested in El Fuerte and transportation to it from Los Mochis see my other post about Hotel Rio Vista. The train ride from the sea of Cortez to Copper Canyon is much more scenic than the route from the other direction. Fare from El Fuerte to Creel... More
Everyone loved it- one photo opp after another. The Indians are friendly and colorful. The food on the train very good
Get the early morning train from Los Mochis on the coast. The views are spectacular as the train slowly winds through the tunnels, valleys and over many bridges. Get off near Copper canyon and get bus to Chihuahua is a better option. It's quicker by far. Buy your train ticket the day before and check 2nd class is running that... More
In short ... you must make this trip at least once in a lifetime. It's like you should visit Yosemite at least once. Or the Hoover Dam. This trip is a enginering marvel and amazing vistas at every corner. That having been said I'm going to make a few suggestions "off the beaten path" that might help you save a... More
