We have had a wonderful week with Copper Canyon Adventures. Tammy, the organiser, even found out our flights had been changed, when we did not know, and helped to book more suitable ones. Our guide, Juan was brilliant, knowledgeable, caring, amusing and even made a translation out of a book which he emailed to us later. The canyons are brilliant... More

There are many excellent and informative reviews, so I just wanted to add a bit of advice from my experience there. First, if you want to do the zip lines, do not expect to do so as part of a tour from an hotel. Arrange transportation to the zip line station and expect to spend a full morning or afternoon... More

If you ever get the chance to do this you have to. Start in El Fuerte. The Chepe train ride is amazing. We stayed at Hotel Divisadero which has rooms right on the edge of the canyon and at least half the price of the ones at the stop before. A guide took us to the tram and other points... More

What more could you want in journey? The scenes were beautiful at all hours of the day - sunsets were gorgeous! So much to learn about the Tarahumara people. An engineering feat second to none to construct that railway so long ago. Highly recommended. It can be difficult to get information though, even limited on the web. Might be best... More

We booked a shore excursion for nine months before our HAL Cruise to the Sea of Cortez. We were looking for an alternative to the cruise companies tours for our one day in Topoblanco. We were very impressed with what Copper Canyon Adventures had to offer and decided to purchase their guided one tour and recruited other passengers to join... More

My husband and I are traveling by sailboat, from San Diego to the 'Mexican Riviera'. He always wanted to see the Copper Canyon, he loves trains, I was dubious. First we had to get there, then we had to figure out the trip. We had a couple of travel guides, but infrequent internet access, so no real concrete info and... 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

This is a very amazing view shows you the diff types of way nature can be beautiful. The food is good. Not too crowded We did go during winter so it was kind of cold at the facilites . But nothing beats the views. You can also see how natives live and still exist pretty amazing to see the tarahumaras.

We had a great 10 day trip through Copper Canyon with Copper Canyon Adventures. Hotels were good, our guide was terrific and all our logistics went very well. We loved having a local bi-lingual guide who knew everyone in the area and had been there for years. Our guide navigated everything and we always felt like we were in good... More

This is a very recommended trip, first take a ride on the Chepe, the last of the passenger trains in Northern Mexico, and stop at Barrancas del Cobre. The greatness of this Canyon leaves you breathless. I have visited the Grand Canyon, and, both are just beautiful, so don't hesitate on visiting this beautiful place, and there are a lot... More
