One bite of this mighty vertigo-inducing series of valleys and you have to revisit this amazing experience which is twice as wide and twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. I am a sucker for brochures that read " Spend weeks in the canyon hiking through the forests and hills", but we had only time for the highlights so we... More

I decided not to drive so I took a long train adventure. It was so much fun. You can book it with hotel. And you should.

Took this train from Chihuahua to Los Mochis - starts in the desert scrub before ascending into the mountains and the unspoilt wilderness beyond. The most beautiful scenery, vertiginous gorges and high peaks abound as this impossible train winds its way around hairpins and through mountains before dropping down through sub-tropical forests towards the Pacific ocean. This train journey is... More

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.
