Went on a 3 day tour to the Copper Canyon and Batopilas from Creel. The descent into Batopilas Canyon from the road is amazing, we had someone driving us so we could enjoy the views. The drive itself is a big part of the experience, the road winds it way down into the canyon in a series of hairpin bend.... More

This was the highlight to our trip to the copper canyon. You absolutely must make this journey. The road is very good but something you will never forget. We booked a small package through Cesar at Casa Margaritas in Creel who also own a hotel in Batopilas. He speaks excellent English and provides transportation and tours as well.

What an amazing trip to the bottom of Copper Canyon. The ride there and back is made up of sharp curves, land slides and ice and snow but worth it to see the views and stay in this quaint remote town. We used S&G Tours

Do this! It's an incredible drive (thankful we had a driver and weren't doing it ourselves). Beautiful views. Not much after you get to town but it's quaint and comfortable, full of 'real' people. We enjoyed it.

I fully recommend this trip as it is truly unique. Its not for the fainthearted or ones who easily get a queasy stomach. The many curves and hairpin turns are endless. Even though the road now consists of two lanes and is almost fully asphalted, it is still not easy to navigate as huge rocks and stones of any size... More

We were in batopilas in April in was a long trip (4) hours, due to land slides that were not cleared by anyone. It is still worth the trip! Very nice people in the town, met the mayor, went through the museum & had dinner with a local family home!!! Would like to go back, never felt uncomfortable, or worried... More

I just booked a car and driver through the hotel to drive us down to Batopilas. First, it's an amazing trip, but it is not for anyone not willing to experience the joy of traveling to a hard to reach destination. The trip down only took about 3.5 hours. We stopped to take great pictures. The scenery all the way,... More

We are senior (hubby is 75, I am 69), but adventurous. We traveled to Batopilas at night due to the road being closed due to construction during the day, came across many landslides, many rocks in the road, and the road was mainly dirt, very dangerous and steep, had to cross a couple very rickety wood bridges, so the trip...

What a lovely little turn of the century silver mining village! The eight hour drive to get there from Creel was one of the most hair raising experiences I have ever had. At points, with a sheer drop beyond belief, the road was being built in front of us. For a small "money gift" they made way for us. The... More

After riding the train from El Fuerte to Creel, a friend and I took the 3 Amigos tour to Batopilas. The ride down through the canyons was such a breathtaking and amazing adventure that I feel it is an essential element to any trip to the Copper Canyon. Our driver, Noel Gonzalez from Creel, was the perfect tour guide. His... More
