    What to Expect
    On this private half-day tour your guide will pick you up from your Creel hotel or a central meeting point in downtown and take you to see some of the most interesting places around Creel and the Tarahumara town of San Ignacio de Arareko. 

    During your tour, you will see the interesting rock formations of Valley of the Mushrooms, Frogs and Monks. You will admire amazing landscapes and views of green forests and the Sierra Madre Occidental. You'll also visit the San Ignacio Mission which sits in the middle of the town and the Arareko lake.

    As you tour the area, your guide will provide insight into the Tarahumara culture and traditions, along with the geography and natural history of the region. Keep your camera handy for endless photo ops of the breathtaking landscape. Your last stop is Cueva de Sebastian and you can choose the return time as this is a private tour and you will have time to explore the town on your own before heading back.

    Staying in Creel at the charming best western hotel was an excellent place to start this tour. We went from there to the valley of the mushrooms, valley of the frogs and valley of the monks. All fascinating stone formations. Thou roughly enjoyable.

    The lake and the San Ignacio church and environs are breathtaking. The Tarahumara natives sell their wares under interesting rock formations. This valley should be designated a national park because of the beauty.
