Wooded Landscapes and the Sierra Tarahumara Route

Creel, Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua

This interesting route will take you through the most beautiful landscapes of northern Mexico, starting with Chihuahua. In this city you will enjoy its Historic Center, where you can walk through the Plaza de Armas (Arms Square) and see its impressive baroque-style cathedral. You will also be able to admire the Quinta Gameros (Gameros Villa), a mansion dating from the Porfirian era and that looks like something taken out of a movie. The natural beauties that surround Chihuahua also stand out.

A few minutes from Chihuahua is Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, where rarámuris, mestizos and menonitas (mennonites) coexist, which is why it is also known as the City of the Three Cultures. Here you can see the wide apple fields of the menonitas (mennonites) or walk through the downtown area and see the temple of San Antonio de Padua. Its surroundings were also important scenarios during the Revolution, such as the old Hacienda de Bustillos, which is a few kilometers away, where Francisco I. Madero met with Pancho Villa and Pascual Orozco.

Ascending through the Sierra Madre Occidental, or also called Sierra Tarahumara, San Juanito awaits you. It is a charming place with dreamy wooden cabins, surrounded by forests and nature. One of its main attractions is the Presa Situriachi (Situriachi Dam), where you can ride a boat and even fish. Thanks to its landscapes surrounded by nature, it is ideal for you to enjoy adventure tourism and a few days of relaxation.

Climbing even further up the Sierra Madre Occidental, you will reach Bocoyna. This small town is beautiful because it is surrounded by forests and wonderful views. Connect with the nature of the place when walking among aromatic pine trees. You will be able to see old constructions that used to be churches. You will also be able to savor the tesgüino (artisan drink) prepared by the Tarahumara, made from corn or sayonara.

Just 15 km (9 miles) away is Creel. This small town emanates great tranquility that invites you to explore it. On the main avenue you will find various stores where you can buy Tarahumara handicrafts such as metal bracelets and earrings, shawls and even drums and violins. It is perfect for adventure tourism such as mountain biking and rappelling. It is also ideal if you want to go to visit the Barrancas del Cobre (Copper Canyon) or take the tour aboard the Chepe train.
