Batopilas Canyon is spectacular. The road leading into the canyon is relatively new, but not well maintained. There were serious rock slides and rock falls that had not been cleaned up. Much of the road does not have structures to prevent rocks from falling or...More

What an amazing trip to the bottom of Copper Canyon. The ride there and back is made up of sharp curves, land slides and ice and snow but worth it to see the views and stay in this quaint remote town. We used S&G Tours

Do this! It's an incredible drive (thankful we had a driver and weren't doing it ourselves). Beautiful views. Not much after you get to town but it's quaint and comfortable, full of 'real' people. We enjoyed it.

I fully recommend this trip as it is truly unique. Its not for the fainthearted or ones who easily get a queasy stomach. The many curves and hairpin turns are endless. Even though the road now consists of two lanes and is almost fully asphalted,...More
