Getting Here and Around

There are just two ways to get to Batopilas: three days hiking overland from Urique, or four hours by torturous and sometimes frightening back-road switchbacks off Highway 35 from Creel. In Creel, 3 Amigos Tours (www.amigos3.com) provides trucks and a guided itinerary for the journey, but this is a route only for fearless drivers. A bus comes and goes from Creel daily, taking about six hours.
