As with many Rarámuri towns, Cusárare is a tiny, remote hamlet anchored by a stone church. In fact, it is heir to a mission established by the Jesuits in the 17th century. Nearby is a stunning waterfall, plunging almost 100 feet, framed by a rocky riverbed and mountains covered with a vast pine forest.
During the second half of the year, when the rains fill the Cusárare river, the waterfall becomes a thick white curtain foaming over red rocks, while the streams shimmer turquoise blue. There is no way around it. It is one of the most beautiful shows of the Sierra Tarahumara region.
