Copper Canyon We were a group of 10 Australians who did the El Chepe train journey through the Copper Canyon in Nov 2014 and, in short, we had a ball and would highly recommend the experience. We had spent a few weeks in Cabo beforehand and flew from the small airport CSL to Los Mochis. Easy and good value at... More

the best way to take this trip is from El Feurte going east. Lunch on board was decent, limited choice but properly prepared.

The train ride from El Fuerte to Divisdearo is as awesome a train ride as one can find. The ride through the canyon has to be seen to be appreciated. 86 tunnels, 36 bridges with interesting rock formations. The train was excellent. Air conditioned, good seating and the meal at lunch very tasty (included as part of our tour, beers... More

After taking buses for 2 years throughout south and central america it was nice to take in a more comfortable train trip. We took the 2nd class train from El Fuerte to Urique, the second class train only leaves on certain days and it is actually attached to the first class train (which seemed to go everyday), we couldn't see...

The train journey is great with breath taking views. The only problem is that it is very long. The best thing is that you end up at the copper canyon and that makes up for everything. Make sure you take the zip lines down into the canyon.

The train is comfortable, although the ride is definitely not smooth. Along the way there is interesting countryside to see, rivers to cross and mountains to look at.

A fun & comfortable way to enjoy the sites of the Copper Canyon & Sierra Madre mountains! Comfortable & wide seats, large windows, comfortable temperature, good dining room service all combine to make this trek a must do! The scenery is breath taking and they do give a verbal tour along the way. Staff is excellent and friendly.

Nowhere else have we found is there a better, and infinitely more practical a way to explore and experience the network of gorges of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, than taking the 'El Chepe' railroad from Chihuahua to Los Moches, near the Gulf of California. We began from the sprawling city smattered with examples of Spanish Colonial architecture. From here... More
