This area of the Copper Canyon is gorgeous. The rock formations, roads with tight hairpin curves, and mountain + desert plants impressive. We had the opportunity to meet an extended Tarahumara Indian family, share a lunch with them, and purchase some of their beautiful baskets and other arts. Most of the Tarahumara women were dressed in traditional dresses, skirts, and... More

This wonderful hidden jewel at the bottom of the Copper Canyon was well worth the drive on the twisty roads. How could a town like this exist all alone in the middle of nowhere? Very few travel here and few stay over night but we stayed 4 nights and were sad to leave then. The people were helpful and friendly... More

Unbelievable as to how these people live in today's world. An interesting sight was a native lying under a table with her wares to sell on top, she was hiding her use of a cell phone!

No matter where you are, the views of the canyon and the hills beyond are spectacular and almost every view has a Tarahumara walking to or from their remote homes.

The tarahumara sierra and all the copper canyon area have endless breathtaking views. It is very impressive to see how a family of ten natives live inside a cave, including the 75 years old friendly grandmother (that does speak spanish ) that tells you she was born there and now three generations live there . Amazing

No fake performances, this was a real view of how the Tarahumara Indians live. My tour included a visit to a woman who was raising her family in a cave. Unbelievable!

I had no idea that there was a mountain range in Mexico. We went on a World Cruise and one of our last excursions was a tour going to Copper Canyon. I had no idea that there was anything that rivaled the Grand Canyon of Arizona, USA. The tour would take a bus ride from the coast at Topolobampo to... More
