On your way to Batopilas, you have to explore the Copper Canyons, a natural treasure harboring charming towns, waterfalls, breathtaking views, and the ancestral traditions of the Rarámuri and Tarahumara people. The trip—which you can take on the train called El Chepe Express—can be started in the Magical Town of Creel. Visit this picturesque logging town’s tree-shaded Plaza de Armas, Iglesia de Cristo Rey church, and the Museum of Paleontology.

Furthermore, take in the views from the nearby lookout point perched high on a hill. It is oriented to the Cristo Rey statue and Lago de Arereco, a lake where you can enjoy a boat ride. 

What to Know 

If you continue on down the road, you will get to Divisadero Barrancas. This stopover provides mind-blowing views of the natural wonders, plus ecotourism activities and outings.
