The small village of Cerocahui lies at the edge of the Barranca de Urique, the deepest of the system of gorges, in a beautiful valley between mountains dotted with apple, plum and grapevine orchards and walnut trees. The old missionary village founded in 1680 has history to tell: it was from this village that the Jesuit priest Juan María de Salvatierra left for Loreto

WALK THE BEAUTIFUL MINING VILLAGE 
Walk through the mining village, where tropical fruits, corn, peanuts and coffee thrive, and get to know the old oven, church, cemetery and town square.
Visit the San Francisco de Cerocahui Mission in the historic downtown, the most beautiful and well-preserved mission of the Tarahumara. Walk through its gardens and admire the pink quarry building in the temple founded by Jesuits.

TAKE PART IN ACTION SPORTS AND ECOTOURISM 
Marvel at the more than 200 species of birds that inhabit the mountains. Climb atop the Cerro del Gallego to admire the Urique River and its old mining village.
Walk to the beautiful Cerocahui or Huicochi Waterfalls, and reward your efforts with a refreshing dip in the waterfall and its natural pools. If you prefer not to walk, you can rent a horse and take an unforgettable ride.
