We set off very early in the morning from Chihuahua station. On the day on question they were not running the tourist class and we had to opt for first class... or go back to hotel. We decided to go for it and paid a little less than $4000 for two of us for a one way ticket to Barancas/Posada.... More

We took El Chepe, first class seats, from Los Mochis to Creel and then returned to Los Mochis to pick up our car. On the way into the canyon, the best views are from the right side of the train, opposite side on the way back, but there were plenty of empty seats, so we could change sides if we... More

Train is surprisingly modern with good meals. But the main attraction are the views of Copper Canyon and the native Indians.

We took el Chepe first class from Chihuahua to Posada Barrancas, and then from Posada to El Fuerte. The trip was great! From the incredible scenery to the comfortable seating to the good food in the dining car. We absolutely loved this. If you are looking for an adventure and like trains. Do this! It rained on and off the... More

We took the Chepe First Class. The reservation and accordingly the payment went very smoothly. We arrived at the train station and the train left Los Mochis punctually. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We liked the train trip from Los Mochis to Creel better than the other way around simply because on the way up the train would... More

The train ride takes you through several different climate changes, and offers spectacular views to places you couldn't see by car or bus. It is a once in a lifetime adventure. We were, however, reminded of Mexico's security issues on board. The train starts out in Sinaloa, one of Mexico's more dangerous states. There were armed guards on board for... More

The views from the train are the best, its a long trip from Los Mochis to Creel almost 11 hours. The train in economy is almost the same as in first class, only a few differences. I recommend it a lot.

Our trip began in Chihuahua. We arrived early morning the day before our Chepe departure. Spent the day in Chihuahua, seeking out the sites. Next morning train leaves at 6am. Seats are comfortable. We broke up the trip: an overnight at Casa Margarita in Creel; had time here to take a tour of a few canyon sites and do some... More

There were times I could have cursed my decision to go on this trip but now on reflection I have gone and done something that no one I know has. It was tough at times. The train journey was fine, comfortable enough and good views. I stopped off at the numerous places. Starting at chihuahua and ending at el fuerte.... More

July 2-5 2016, we traveled from Chihuahua to El Fuerte, to Posada Barrancas, Creel then back to Chihuahua. Wish we could've doubled the length of our trip - it was THAT fantastic. Train was uber comfy, the reclining seats, the AC, and our kids absolutely LOVED the tasty local flavors of the yummy, satisfying meals in the dining car. Highlight... More
