BARRANCAS DEL COBRE

HOW TO GET THERE

Barranca de Cobre is ever more accessible due to the kilometric development of the system of highways and the vigorous train that, since many years ago, runs through one of the most spectacular routes on the planet.

This place of unparalleled beauty can also be accessed by air from the City of Chihuahua, the state capital. The flight allows saving several hours of travelling (close to 10), though it also impedes travellers from watching closely the landscapes of the Barranca.

Below you will find some further details regarding the routes of access:
  • By train: it is the best way of arriving in the Sierra of Tarahumara, where Barranca del Cobre is situated; the railroad Chihuahua - Pacific sets off from the state capital and ends its "pilgrimage" in Los Mochis (Sinaloa). 87 tunnels and 35 bridges are crossed during the trip, and the old towns of Creel, Divisadero, Cerocahui and Bahuichivo are visited, amongst others.
    The railroad provides two daily services: First Express and Economic Class; the difference is in the number of stops they carry out on the way.
    The First Express takes 12 hours and stops at the tourist stations of Cuauhtémoc, Creel, Divisadero (a reasonable time in order to appreciate the surrounding setting), Posada Barranca, Bahuichivo and El Fuerte. In addition, in order to facilitate touring the towns of the Barranca for travellers, they can get off the train for one or two days in a certain locality and then catch it back without paying an extra charge; travellers can make up to three stops of this kind on each direction. The Economic Class is also known as the Local Train; the trip lasts 16 hours approximately, and it forcefully stops at 25 stations and at the flag stops as well if the passengers ask for it to do so, making a total of 61.

Useful Information of Barrancas del Cobre
