A group of three of us took a tour to Cascada de Basaseachi with Arturo from Umarike Expedicciones in Creel in October. I would HIGHLY recommend Arturo, he was great! He speaks both English and Spanish, and we had mentioned to him that we did not like being in big tour groups and around a lot of other people (we... More

A must to visit! We visited the waterfall in rainy weather, which makes it more beautiful. We leave the city of Chihuahua at 7 am and arrived at 11 am without any problems, the road is in good condition and well marked. We stayed in some cabins called Rancho San Lorenzo. There are two ways to appreciate the waterfall: 1)... More

It requires some travel to get to this national park but from the vista point, the falls are stunning against the backdrop of the canyons and cliffs. You may visit at the top or hike down to the bottom to further enjoy the experience.

Some what hard to get if you don't have your own car but make an effort because it is well worth the effort to see this beautiful waterfall. The walk down to base is steep and rocky but again worth effort if you have the time.

This is the second highest waterfall in Mexico at 300 meters, about 1000 feet for you people that don't use the metric system. There are several different viewpoints around the canyon to view the falls and a very extensive trail system to hike the area including hiking to the bottom of the falls

If you visit during the rainy season, you will assuredly be much impressed! It is the fifth highest in the Americas at 807 ft. ( 246 meters) Absolutely spectacular setting! It's a bit off the beaten path and there isn't any regular bus service, so it requires renting a car, or hiring a driver, but if you're a fan of... More

Its about a 3miles or 5kilometers hike and i didnt mind it at all. The end result is worth every bit of it something everyone has to experience. The fall is so strong and empowering makes you feel like your at the top of the world. Taking a breath of fresh air here really is gods gift. All of those... More

If you love nature and don't mind hiking down for 1-20 minutes you must feel the power that this fall has. It's amazing!

I got to Copper Canyon area and the only place I decided to see was Cascada de Basaseachi. I am an independent traveler and I don't like to go with a group. I only came here with a pair of sandals and I am average for fitness. So I decided to take a bus from Creel to Basaseachi. Buses are... More

Hi!, I went on a trip around the State of Chihuahua on October of 2010, I checked out a lot of different touristy spots and this one tops them all. Right from the start, the people at the town nearby are very welcoming while at the same time staying out of your way, there are practically no vendors and the... More
