I had no idea that there was a mountain range in Mexico. We went on a World Cruise and one of our last excursions was a tour going to Copper Canyon. I had no idea that there was anything that rivaled the Grand Canyon of Arizona, USA. The tour would take a bus ride from the coast at Topolobampo to... More

We toured the southern portion of this area in mid-March with Superior Tours of Puerto Vallarta. More known as Copper Canyon (for those outside Mexico), this is truly an amazing creation of nature and visiting here should be on your bucket list. The tour lasts a week but 4 days are really only travel days as you need to go... More

The Tarahumara are a fascinating people. Their crafts are so lovely and they have a great love of their own music. I saw one man playing a violin type instrument. Definitely made the moment his own.

Beautiful countryside and culture. The tarahumara won't talk to you and seemed to not like the tourists, most are unfriendly but the kids loved us. We paid two little girls to take us down to the Cusamare falls. The town is UGLY, we think the ugliest town we have ever seen in Mexico (I am referring to the town of... More

I live in this region part time and work with the Tarahumara people, who are the best natural long distance runners in the world, as well as some of the most colorfully dressed. It is a huge area, encompassing about 25,00 square miles and 7 canyons, one of which ( Urique ) is the deepest canyon in North America. There... More

Raramuri communities are settled all around the immense Tarahumara mountains. If you travel here you will need open eyes, open ears and small talking. Really approaching to the Raramuri people needs respect and knowledge of the culture. Outsiders normally do not have an idea of this communities cosmovision, respect for the land, respect for the others, community work and sharing... More

"The 3 Amigos" Van chauffeured by Cesar and Pedro (English Speaking) were very helpful as we entered the various villages to allow us to purchase the handicrafts of the indigeneous people. We were humbled. An opportunity of a lifetime for our group.
