Creel to Batopilas

Anyone know the current set-up for bus travel to Batopilas from Creel? I understand there is a bus each morning outside Hotel Towi - what time & is it necessary to book in advance? 2 years ago Rough Guide was saying the road was being improved, any news on that? What about the return trip time? I've booked 2 nights at Hotel Juanita.

Well done Greg, that sounds amazing. Hope others see this & make the journey too. Batopilas was once the wealthiest town in the old empire of ‘New Spain’, due to silver mining. The rock falls in the road are scary though!

For future travelers, there is a van that runs from Creel to Batopilas and back. In Creel, buy tickets at Hotel Artesania. There are no signs. The van leaves at 7:30AM. It takes about 4 hours. On the way back, catch the van outside the big Catholic church. It leaves at 5AM. There are no signs. No way to buy tickets ahead of time. You pay for tickets when you arrive in Creel. I would confirm departure times. The van will stop half way at a small tienda -- chips, cookies, sodas. It has a very primitive outhouse. On the way down, we also stopped at a viewpoint- mirador where you could buy baskets. These were the only baskets we saw anywhere near Batopilas.

Going in September. Is it still true that the van does not run on Sundays?
