For more than 50 years, the Chihuahua-Pacific train, known as El Chepe, has been the only passenger train in all of Mexico. It connects the states of Chihuahua and Sinaloa along a 652-kilometer span, and crosses eighty-six tunnels and thirty-seven bridges above flowing rivers to meet the Tarahumara culture through one of the most modern railway networks in the world.


Start your tour in the city of Chihuahua, rich in culture and history. Then visit Cuauhtémoc, home to the largest Mennonite community in the world. After that, head to Creel, the main Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town) of the Sierra Tarahumara, to then arrive at Divisadero to enjoy spectacular views of the Barrancas del Cobre, and its regional food and handcrafts. Get to Posada Barrancas, which rests 1.5 miles above sea level, to discover the Barrancas del Cobre Park. 

Tour the Urique Canyon, the largest along the Bauichivo-Cerocahui route, the Jesuit mission and the valleys of the village of Cerocahui. Make your last stop in Témoris, a natural beauty of waterfalls and ravines. Walk El Fuerte of Sinaloa, a Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town) with its own mining center, old mansions and a river running through it. Finally, come to Los Mochis for a taste of its delicious seafood.
