Top Reasons to Go
The train ride: The Chihuahua al Pacífico railroad allows you to cut a direct path through this dramatic landscape.
Encountering the Tarahumara: This indigenous community's culture has changed little in the last 1,000 years.
Biking, hiking, or riding to Batopilas and Urique: The rough roads to these towns are full of switchbacks, with incredible views around each turn.
Communing with nature: The backcountry Copper Canyon Sierra Lodge is a good place to start, with its tranquil backdrop amid pine trees, lack of electricity, and vegetarian meals.
Exploring an ancient trading center: The sea of roofless walls at World Heritage Site Casas Grandes, the ruins of Paquimé, looks like an adobe maze.
