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

We took the tourist train in economy class.... you cannot reserve economy but just show up and buy your ticket at the Los Mochos station..... Lots of locals and a few travellers. We got to the station around 5am and had no problems at all .... very little difference between first and economy class. Spent a lot of time between... More

Early next day we took the Chepe to Bahuichivo, spend two nigths in another Balderrama hotel in Cerocahui, then took the train again to Divisadero... More

We rode the train from Los Mochis to Creel and back. The ride from Los Mochis was in economy class and was very pleasant. We were seated by a large, clean window with great views. Food vendors came on to the train with delicious, inexpensive tamales and quesadillas. Fellow passengers were friendly. By contrast, the return trip was not nice.... More

Travelled through Mexico using the Chepe train making stops along the way. The train has a dining area where they serve light breakfasts and lunches. However, the main part of El Chepe train are the stunning views of Mexico you will see as you're driven through. The only thing i regret is not taking more pictures !!

Thank JQueenie
