Are you looking for the best tours on ”El Chepe” Train? Do you want to visit the majestic Copper Canyon Mexico (Barrancas del Cobre)? Read carefully what a good tour includes!
The best way to visit the Copper Canyon is on tour on the Chepe train
One of the places that have generated immense tourist interest, in recent years in México, is the Copper Canyon tours. You should visit without missing any detail. There is only one way to have a privileged view of this canyon system, approaching the only passenger train in the country: El Chepe train.
Some of the most symbolic stations to have the best views are Divisadero and Posada Barrancas.
The train inaugurated in the 20th century, but the Tarahumara Indians have been inhabiting the region in huts, caves and other primitive places, for a long time. They have known all the secrets of the area for more than 500 years, and now you have the opportunity to meet them!
Although it’s possible to have a good view of the canyon by road, we recommend the tours on the Chepe train without any doubt an unforgettable experience that you’ll want to repeat all over again.
Perhaps many are unaware of the fact, but the Copper Canyon is deeper and more extensive than the famous Grand Canyon in Colorado, United States.
The key is to choose a good tour that offers all the comforts, such as accommodation in four and five-star hotels with breakfast included, transfers, guided tours in different train stops and, of course, the tickets included. We offer you this and more in your incredible vacations in the north of Mexico.
There are several options for tours on the Chepe train
You can choose between different tours, from 3 to 7 days. It wouldn’t surprise us if you later get the impression that 6 days were not enough to know all the hidden treasures of Sierra Madre.
However, to make your trip as complete as possible, we recommend you choose a 6-day tour option, simply because each train station represents a world to discover.
